Cold Oven 1800's Pound Cake

michelle minosh


This was given to me by a friend of the family when I was in my teens and I would go over to her place and clean to get extra cash and this was her "Church Cake" that she would take all the time. I was lucky enought to get her box of recipes from her son when she pasted away and found out that this had been pased down from the mothers to the daughters since sometime in the 1800's, he did not want them and was a batchler and in his 50's at the time (this was in the late 1980's I was given the box).
