The Best Pound Cake Ever!



I hope everyone is having a wonderful day so far :). As you guys can see. I have a bit of a sweet tooth. I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. But I love baking... I saw this recipe a couple of weeks ago on a site, and I knew I had to try it. You see, I have never made pound cake before and I am a huge pound cake fan. While cooking Sunday dinner I tried to think of a nice desert recipe to try, and boy did this pound cake come to mind. Of course I had to run to the store to pick up a couple of the ingredients. Once I arrived back home from the store, I could not wait for the ingredients to get to room temp. While prepping the ingredients, I decided to think about the possible toppings for this dish. I had some left over crushed pineapple and frozen strawberries (that I usually use for smoothies) once everything was room temp. I followed the directions to a "T”, and decided to use a bunt pan, which I had on hand (memo to self: get a pan to bake my pound cake in) I patiently waited for the cake to finish and cool. Once it is was time for the cake to flip on the baking rack. I ate a little piece and the bragging officially started. Once the cake was cooled, I decided to take a little slice. It was total bliss :) no really I made the pound cake on Sunday, and it is all gone now. I called my family over to have a slice and they loved it. This is a recipe that I am truly looking for to making again this week. Did I mention that I never had homemade pound cake before? (Or cannot remember)

    Best,
