My next door neighbor MaryBeth invited me in for a cup of tea. As we chatted, she offered me a slice of her homemade pound cake. One taste, and I was hooked! It was so moist and delicious. She explained that her dad got the recipe from a 1972 Gold Medal Flour Cookbook, and it was his favorite cake. He requested it all the time, and only she could make it for him. She has been making this cake ever since. She says it still tastes delicious if you make it with another brand of all purpose flour. Enjoy!
