There is nothing better then old fashioned recipes like Grandma always made. This Old Fashioned Pound Cake recipe brings back memories of cooking with my grandmother. She was one of those cooks that had the touch and everything she made was good.
Susan Evans from the Facebook group Appalachian Foods and Recipes made this Old Fashioned Pound Cake for her Granny who turned 95 years old! Her Granny said that she makes the best pound cake she's ever had.
That is a wonderful group to be part of if you are looking for friendly community and some great recipes.
