This is the best pound cake I have ever tasted. After I took it to a 'everybody' bring something in the Nursing unit where I worked, frosted and decorated to see how it went over among all in the unit; I was nominated to bring it to every one of our bring food for all to partake of affairs. We worked the 11 P.M. to 7 AM shift in a short term surgical unit. So each of us went to our break room when we could squeeze the time in to eat. This pound cake is wonderful by itself or frosted if desired ;-)
