E-Z Pound Cake

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Aroostook

A simple little cake that keeps well. Serve with berries and cream if you want a fancier dessert. I like it best on its own with a cup of hot tea.

I made this last night specifically to use with some fresh strawberries I had just gotten. It was wonderful. I am definately not the aficianado on baking though-- i have no idea what mace is, and I knew I didn't have any, so I just left it out, and it still came out perfectly. I will definately keep this receipe and use it again. Next time I will make sure to use the mace, and see if it comes out differently. Thanks for posting.
