    ameatlanta's Note:

    My mother made this recipe or some variation of it for over 60yrs. once a week. When I was in college my weekly "care package" always included this cake. In her letter she always included the same note:"be sure to share, I don't want you wearing these pounds home." I made a lot of friends from this treasure. Don't forget to have a "toasted pound" for breakfast. ummm! 1#butter, 1#flour, 1#sugar, reason for name. If recipe has mace in it, count on it coming from Low Country in S.C.
