Great Pound Cake

Great Pound Cake created by Juenessa

From "A Little Taste of Texas Cookbook". I always want to make sure my cakes are moist and my aunt taught me to add a dollop of mayonnaise to any and all cake batter. I add it to this cake too. Try it if you like, but it is not necessary and not in the original recipe.

    Delightful flavor - this is a MUST for pound cake lovers. We ate part and sent the rest to the neighbors - who thanked me profusely and asked for the recipe! Apparently it's a hit, Juenessa! Thanks for posting!
