    Stephanie Rex's Wife's Note:

    This is my Granny's pound cake. One year my dad took one to work with him. All of the men he worked with were asking him if they could buy a cake from Granny. She sold those cakes for $20 each and had to tell my dad she wasn't making any more before they left her alone. That's how she got her Christmas money that year, and it was a very good Christmas. She passed away about 2 years ago, and I thought this recipe was lost. Fortunately my Grandma had it and now I have it. Here it is.

      "Sweat" the cake, by wrapping it in wax paper and tinfoil, until it cools. This will make it moist. It won't be anywhere near as good if you don't do this.

      I am sorry but the texture of this pound cake was coarse and crumbly and it was way too sweet. Did not care for it. Sorry. I FORGOT TO UP THE RATING... This pound cake was WAY better the next morning! Toasted it with butter and we gobbled the whole thing up.
