This cake is such a big hit with my family. It requires a little work and time so prepare it only when you have a little time to spend on it. You can't stop eating it!

I've been making this cake adout 4 years, Igot it from FoodNetwork, Paula Deen. It is wonderful. Always a hit no matter what function I take it to. You can use the sauce on most any pound cake. Thanks for posting
