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.
