My MIL gave me this recipe 30 years ago and I've been making it ever since. It's a very moist pound cake and serves well with ice cream or gelato and/or sorbet. It also freezes well. I make it and freeze and defrost a week or so later. Sometimes company comes and I don't have a cake made, not often but sometimes. Enjoy everyone.
