This is my Aunt Gloria's pound cake recipe. It really is the best pound cake I've ever had. I try not to make it too often because my husband tends to eat the whole thing!!!!!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

OK, this seriously is one of the best pound cakes we've had. It melts in your mouth with buttery goodness in every bite. Sweet and moist, we could not stop going back for just one more slice. It's great served alone or doctored up with fresh fruit and a dollop of whipped cream. This pound cake recipe is going to become your go-to recipe. It's easy to make with these with step-by-step instructions and plenty of photos to guide you.

Note: Every oven is different. Ours was finished in an hour, so keep an eye on the cooking time. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
