This is the best pound cake ever! The combination of the three flavorings is delicious. For years I never shared this recipe with anyone because it was my signature dish for potlucks, funerals, parties, etc.

Perfectly moist and delicately sweet, this is the ideal pairing for a steamy cup of coffee. Serve as is, or top with berries for an extra special touch! The Test Kitchen
