      The batter pre-flour mixture is so light and fluffy. This really makes a great pound cake--brown sugar has been the missing ingredient in other recipes. It gives the finished cake a beautiful color too. Hope yours comes out just as good.

      Pound cake. This has to be amazing. I have had many kinds over the years but never with this recipe. Of course, I am bookmarking this so I can make it very soon. I can almost smell those aromas wafting from the kitchen as it bakes. Thanks for making me drool :)
