My grandmother has been gone for years now but she made the best pound cake that I have ever eaten. It was crispy on the top and sides and so delicious and moist on the inside. I have tried many recipes but never have been able to get it to taste like her. I tried this recipe and it is close, not quite but since I can't have hers this will have to do.
