This recipe is very old...It originated from a plantation somewhere in South Louisiana. This particular recipe has been tweaked by me and baked by me so much, that it is called "Mom's Pound Cake".
A good cake to serve with strawberries and whipped cream.
It can be served with fruit toppings and jellies, lemon, orange, or chocolate glazes, ice cream, or just plain...warm from the oven.
I hope you enjoy this rich, buttery cake as much as we have over the years!
