I found this buried under lots of stuff on my bulletin board and wanted to make sure I didn't lose it. This is "Mrs. Schoen's" recipe.

DH gave this 15 stars on his first mouthful! It came out more fluffy than I had expected for a pound cake but it sure was a hit in this house. Made as directed but in a half amount. It's certainly easy to put together and my 1/2 amount was ready in 1 hr. Thanks for this one Mary, made for Photo Tag.
