pound, sour cream, banana, gold layer plus icing





Pound cake is my cake of choice. I baked it quite often, usually in 6 one pound aluminum foil loaf pans. Everybody raved, especially my late husband. He enjoyed it most when it was at least 5 days old. Whether it was plain, marbleized or contained chocolate chips, he just loved it. For you, Bernie, I provide this recipe for all to try.
