AUNT SISTER'S POUND CAKE

In many of the Southern States, everyone has a nickname. We always referred to my mom's best friend as Aunt Sister, she was like a Sister to mama, & to us like an Aunt, hence the name.

This is her recipe. It goes back many years. I have added the addition of the cake enhancer so that it stays moist over a few days & also a glaze. I hope you enjoy it. I made it in 2 smaller cake pans or you can use a 12-16 cup tube pan for a much larger cake. If you use the larger version additional baking time will be required about 1/2 hour extra.
