    TEJx3's Note:

    This is a recipe for the BEST POUND cake I have ever had. This was my Grandmothers recipe. She recently passed at the ripe old age of 100 and I think she would have liked to share this with the world. She would bake 10 of these at a time and give them to everyone including the mailman, paperman and anyone she would meet. So since she is no longer to bake them, I will spread the joy she would have this way. Please give it a try. Serve it plan, with your favorite fruit, ice cream or chocolate sauce or whatever you would like. The possibilities are limitless. Or better yet make two and give one as a gift.

      This cake was a huge hit! I made it for my son's birthday and we barely had any left over. I felt like it was good on its own, but some people ate it with ice cream or some strawberries in sugar. I want this to be the only pound cake recipe I use from now on. Thanks!

      Excellent pound cake. I didn't put any kind of glaze on it because it was good all by itself. I did note that there are no directions for when to add the 5 eggs so I added them one at a time after I had creamed the sugar and butter. I used regular butter since I don't keep margarine. Thanks for a great recipe.
