POUND CAKE ............. (An Entenmanns's Clone)
Nancy J. Patrykus
What a delicious little loaf cake this is. A simple desert to serve.
Wonderful served with strawberries, and equally good a
plain with your morning coffee.
Keeps very well in your freezer for when you have that unexpected company....that just drops in!
You might be surprised, it tastes like the real thing!
