I remember asking Nannie to jot down her favorite pound cake recipe she had just made. She obliged, and to this day, I always use Nannie's recipe because it is a plain and simple butter cake which is just the right size for a small family. She titled the recipe, Plain Loaf Cake, and I still have the scribbled out recipe...
