My mother used to make this pound cake for Granny Miller back in the 60's. She wasn’t really our grandmother but all the kids in the neighborhood called her Granny Miller. She was a very sweet elderly lady that lived next door to us when we were growing up. She loved all the kids, and the kids loved her. This is a very good recipe!
