This is a common recipe taken to families that lost a loved one, if someone is ill, and church socials.

This is a moist pound cake and very good.

**Sometimes I add lemon/orange zest to the cake batter and the glaze.

**Sometimes I add vanilla extract to batter and some mini chocolate chips. I will do a vanilla or chocolate glaze.

*** For chocolate pound cake: Add: 1/3 cup cocoa powder, 1/3 cup chocolate syrup and 1 cup mini chocolate chips to batter. For Glaze: Add: 1/3 cup cocoa powder, (skip milk), use vanilla, add chocolate syrup to get desired thickness of glaze.

How to Make Funeral Pound Cake With Glaze

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    grease and flour a tube or a bundt pan.
  2. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder and set aside. Cream sugar and Crisco shortening together; add eggs 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition.
    Continue to mix, start alternating adding flour mixture, then milk, a little of each at a time ending with the flour mixture.
    Add lemon and orange extracts.

    Batter will be thicker than a regular cake batter. Pour into a tube or bundt pan that have been greased and floured.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
  4. Glaze:

    In a small mixing bowl, powdered sugar, butter, milk, lemon or vanilla flavoring. To avoid lumps, sift the powdered sugar before trying to mix with butter and liquids. Continue to add milk a little at a time until it is of a consistency that will pour over the cake but not be too runny.

    Pour slowly over the cooled cake, glaze will harden slightly and leave you with a moist cake.
