This is one of my families favorite pound cakes. I use all butter instead of butter with shortening. I can't imagine it being better using shortening. I also add a tbsp of vanilla flavoring because we love vanilla and it gives the cake even more flavor. Lastly, I add a powered sugar glaze with 7-up and lemon vanilla in it. I have also just added powered sugar when I don't have time to make the glaze. This cakes is amazing and also sell this cake and it is one of the most requested. Add a pinch of salt to the flour. Also, I alternate the flour with the 7-up ending with flour. Most cakes use this method and I figured I would too. It absolutely works. I highly recommend this cake.

Wonderful!!! Moist, and light, and ooohh, so delicious. I would definitely recommend this one. I also added 1/4 tsp salt to mine to enhanced the flavor.
