Pound Cake

I know it is the middle off summer, and you are probably not thinking of pound cake. I mean, why would you? Pound cake is a dense cake that contains butter, sugar, and all things good in life. Well, now you are thinking of pound cake, right? I know summer time is usually associated with beach bodies and fitness, but pound cake is a year round cake. It is perfect for any occasion, and it’s pretty darn easy to make.

My maternal grandmother is one of the best cooks I know, and while she didn’t give me this recipe it reminds me of her cooking. It is warm, comforting, and cozy just like her cooking.
