Crusty Pound Cake
I've tried many pound cake recipes and this is by far my favorite!
You can make this pound cake in a bundt pan or individual loaf pans, like I did. Package them in clear plastic bags, tie a sweet little tag on them, and give to a neighbor during these trying times. Remember, we are all in this together, and even the tiniest of gestures goes a long way!
I'm sharing this recipe in hopes that you may already have the ingredients in your pantry! My family enjoys this for dessert with strawberries and blueberries, or even for breakfast! A slice of this pound cake toasted is heavenly with a cup of coffee in the morning.
