      Holy Cow, this was a good cake! This recipe was suggested to me in response to a question I asked about making a true pound of butter, pound of sugar, pound of flour cake. And this is that cake! Just for fun, I weighed the flour and three cups is a pound. So I weighed the sugar and used a pound (it was just less than the three cups called for). And of course, the cup of butter and half cup of shortening are 3/4 of a pound, so this is a real pound cake! I might use a whole pound of butter next time, just for fun. Anyway, this cake was so delicious. I took it to a Spring Equinox celebration, and everyone loved it. I served it with whipped cream and diced strawberries. I could eat this every day!
