This is my adaptation of an old recipe submitted by Josephine Parmley to a collection of recipes put together from viewers of a morning television show named "Country Boy Eddie Show," which aired in Birmingham, Alabama, from 1957-1995. I found the cookbook in a yard sale, and I use it often. The original recipe called for "sweet" milk. I have adjusted the proportions a bit and added almond flavoring because it is my favorite. The cake is a delicious, dense, flavorful, old fashioned pound cake. Delicious alone or with your favorite ice cream. Enjoy!
