This little recipe is from a great friend of mine that has since past away. This pound cake is one of those that you just want to sneak a nibble of. And the sauce is just out of this world. I've included that recipe along with the cake.

When I make this pound cake I like to sit down and savor it and think of my precious friend who is long gone now.
