Linda's Pound Cake

Jennifer S


The first time I made this I filled the pan and it overflowed into my oven. Made a mess but what I was able to salvage went into a bowl and my family ate it as the mistake cake. They loved it so I had to try to get it right. I last made this and got 2 -10 cup bundts and 12 cupcakes from the batter. Never fill your pan past 3/4 fill. This cake grows and is delicious plain.
