Amazing pound cake recipe, made in minutes from julieblanner.com

I tend to gravitate toward desserts that are just as beautiful as they are delicious. Pound Cake is no exception. This isn’t the dried out pound cake that you find pre-packaged in convenience stores or made months in advance at America’s favorite coffee cafe. This is incredibly easy, incredibly good – so good that Chris ate 4 slices one night. Like many of my recipes, it’s made of staple ingredients, with just a few minutes hands on time.
