Nanny's Pound Cake

I love pound cake. I really do. Especially when it has some vanilla ice cream and strawberries on top.

Fortunately for me (and now all of you), my Nanny makes the most delicious pound cake.

I don't know how this recipe varies from pound cake recipes y'all have. It might be exactly the same. It might be completely different. She may have gotten the recipe out of a Southern Living cookbook. It may be a recipe that has been passed down from generation to genereration. I really don't know. All I know is that it tastes good. It's light and fluffy and tasty and fattening and great. So here's the recipe.


Pound Cake

Pound Cake

2 sticks of margarine
1/2 c shortening
3 c granulated sugar
5 eggs

1 c milk
1/2 tsp vanilla 
1/2 tsp almost extract
