This cake will get you raves wherever you bring it. The pound cake is so buttery and moist. This recipe is a simple, classic pound cake. Cut yourself a slice alongside a cup of tea. Or, add some fresh berries and whipped cream on top. After one bite, friends and family will be asking you to make this all the time. The Test Kitchen
