This is a delicious,moist pound cake that freezes beautifully. It's good plain or as a base for other desserts . I love to layer it with custard and berries and then top it with whipped cream to make a trifle. It's also good served with peaches or strawberries.And if you have some left over its good buttered and toasted for breakfast.
