Good Eats

the view from here :: breakfast for dinner :: homemade liquid hand soap, peppermint :: pound cake

I'm not one to try a new poundcake recipe. My late grandmother-in-law's recipe for a giant pound cake is perfect in every way, and named accordingly: Julian cake. On the other hand, my mother-in-law never met a poundcake recipe that didn't pique her interest and prior to being diagnosed with Celiac's, she had a three ring binder of magazine clippings that was, I am confident, 25% pound cake recipes. 

I wanted cake, needed a dessert to share with friends and was limited to a random assortment of ingredients I had on hand. To my Pinterest boards I went and I discovered this recipe, modified here from its original artificially-smiley-teeth-baring version. It was so wonderful. It is not dense like a pound cake you're familiar with, very fluffy, but still very.... poundy? Is that a word?
