Recipe by out of here

This is my favorite pound cake. This recipe came out of a book called, Bell's Best. A friend in Augusta, Georgia gave me this cookbook. This makes a good cake for strawberry shortcake.

Excellent pound cake. I love the crunchy topping. This is the best pound cake I've made and so easy to mix up too. I did use butter instead of the oleo and I used cake flour and sifted once. I couldn't resist and had a piece before bed last night. It was still hot and sooo good. A cooled piece this morning -- just as good!
