Ohhh mama! This pound cake can make a grown man weak in the knees! It is moist, buttery, and oh so delectable! The best part about this recipe is that it's very versatile! If you don't want to use nutella, you could easily replace it with a spread of your choice (i.e. peanut butter, cookie butter, cream cheese, etc). I have not tried it with fruits, but I bet those would be great too! AND it's so, so easy to throw together!!
