I know there are a ton of pound cake recipes out there but this one is truly special to me. Not only was it the first one I ever made, but it's the richest moistest "plain" poundcake I've ever made.. I have made it as a dessert for holiday get togethers and even people who claimed they didn't like pound cake had second helpings .
The best part is it will stand up to any topping you can think to put on it, or you can eat it just plain. It's delicious either way.
