Recipe by monagrays

This is a delicious pound cake made without the addition of milk... My mom would ask me, when I was a kid, what kind of cake did I want for my birthday. My answer was always "Crisco Cake!" This is also the only cake requested for Christmas dinner this year! Do not scrape off the crust that forms on the top of the cake.. it is the best part!!!!

I've made this a couple of times, and it always turns out well. I usually add a teaspoon of coconut flavoring. The crust is my favorite part. Delicious!
