I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME (PHILIPPIANS 4:13).

Pound Cake



This pound cake is a moist and delicious recipe.  It is great with either lemon or almond extract.  If using lemon extract, I use a lemon glaze and with almond extract,  I sometimes use a cream cheese icing.  Both recipes can be found on this website.
