    Chef Hot Pans's Note:

    The recipe is from Fannie Farmer Cookbook (1972 edition). It is a buttery dense cake. I have been making it for years. My family loves this cake. My daughter is especially fond of the ends. I have made it to serve plain or as an ice cream cake topped with a frozen fruit mixture. You must use an electric mixer to get the batter light and fluffy.

      Perfect!!! I had not made a pound cake before this recipe, always bought Sara Lee's Pound Cake. And I have to totally agree with 4-H Mom's experience of smelling this cooking, it is the best smell for baked goods!!! I had a piece for breakfast the next morning and it is delicious!!! I am now using the rest of the cake for another recipe that called for pound cake, strawberries, pudding and whipped topping. It is so moist and buttery delicious!!! Made for PAC Spring 09!!! Thanks for sharing your recipe Chef Hot Pans!!!
