Got this from my sister a few years ago and I didn't believe there was such a thing as a "perfect pound cake" recipe. Well, you won't ever go looking for another pound cake recipe after trying this. BTW, I don't normally like almond, but it's a MUST in this cake. I didn't like the vanilla nearly as much.

Also, it's great frozen and bring it out when guests are a surprise.
