~ Gram's Danish Pound Cake ~ My Blueberry Sauce

Cassie *


My Grandma made this cake several times every summer and although it tasted like she spent hours making it, it's actually quite easy with very few ingredients. She used this a lot for strawberry shortcake. I use it for fruit toppings such as my Blueberry Sauce and also use it in Trifles. So moist, tender and Delicious!!
