I have made this cake for my husbands birthday since we found the recipe back in 1970 something, we loved it because its so moist and rich flavored.

One thing I do on most of my pound cakes is----instead of greasing and flouring the pan---I grease (using Crisco) and SUGAR the pan. Someone told me about this a long time ago and I've been doing it ever since. At first I was afraid the sugar would burn, but it doesn't--it just gives the cake a crispy, light sugary crunch on the outside. Try it, you'll like it!!!
