    Erindipity's Note:

    My mother thinks the original recipe for this cake came from Southern Living, however it is not listed on their website. The cake gets a wonderful crispy crust on top that is amazing. We have it every Fourth of July with strawberries and whip cream.

      I made this cake for my mom and dad's birthday. It looks so much better on the computer than it did when I made it!:) I think if I would have made it with an extra stick of butter in replacement of the crisco it would have came out alot moister. And I suggest that if the cakes still seems wet after cooking for about 1hour and 20minutes on 325 degrees, to turn the oven down to 300 degrees and allow it to finish cooking so that it won't dry out.

      Excellent pound cake but all butter and no shortening. Requires that butter and sugar is extemely well beaten. Needs careful attention and following directions exactly and then you have a very very good textured cake.
