Nana's Southern Pound Cake

Nana's Southern Pound Cake created by 2Bleu

This is my mother's famous pound cake recipe. I have posted it so that my brother and sisters can access it at any time. She used to make this for all the church and school bazaars and it was the first to go. I made it for my school bazaar and got many requests for the recipe. My mother is a southern cook from those bygone years where everyone knew by heart the recipe for a good pound cake. This is hers.

    I wanted to love this, however I found it be very dry. I'm not sure what I did wrong.

    What a yummy pound cake! The only change I made was to halve the recipe to make 1 small loaf and two mini bundt cakes . I also added 1/2 tsp of lemon extract. This is super simple to make, and the oven temperature is low enough that it can be made any time of year. ;)
