This cake has been passed down from my grandmother to my Mom, and now to all my sisters, and now to my daughter.
It's a simple yet very moist & delicious pound cake. Everyone requests it for their birthday cake, even the young ones, believe it or not.
It's brought to all family gatherings, and my sisters and I have to check with each other to make sure we don't all end up bringing it.
I've personally, never substituted butter for the margarine or shortening, because the cake is perfect using the ingredients as listed.
