The key word for this delicious cake is BISQUICK. This is one of the best & easiest homemade, SCRATCH CAKES YOU WILL EVER MAKE. I created this version from the basic recipe that I have already posted. It is basically made in one bowl unless of course you choose to make it marble as I did.

In this recipe I chose to use Butter Flavored Crisco instead of butter.Then I melted some Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips & added it to part of the batter, & the results were amazing. A delicious moist & tasty pound cake. Serve it plain or top it with fresh fruit & whipped cream, it Is a win win situation.
