I love ginger, I love pound cake, I love ginger pound cake! Maybe you will too. This is a large, moist cake--nice crust and crumb. I imagine you could omit the ginger, if you must and have a vanilla pound cake. This came from Southern Living April 2002.

MERP'd for Fall PAC 2008 ~ Very good! The cake is tender and slices nicely. I am disappointed that the ginger flavor isn't more dominant! The next time, I will double the ginger amount ~
