Buttery Pound Cake


We are in our first week of school being out! Yeah! My son still has some work to finish for his online AP English Composition class and next week he is taking an honors college application writing class but other than that we are done. I say we because he still needs me to keep him on track but other than that I don’t have plan the lessons for summer school like I used to do when the kids were little. I used to do “Mommy School” every summer with the kids and they would help me plan things they wanted to learn over the summer. I miss it but it is nice now to not have to plan our whole summer and just take the learning moments as they come. 

Verdict: Someone asked me the other day what my favorite cake was and this is it. I LOVE this cake. It is buttery, creamy, and delicious! You can eat it plain (my favorite way) or top it with berries, a sprinkle of powdered sugar over the top, or as the base of your favorite ice cream sundae. Yummm….

    This looks fantastic. My daughters 1st birthday is coming up soon and I have been looking for a yummy Bundt cake to turn into a “donut cake” for her Donut Grow Up 1st birthday party…this looks like it’d be a good runner up!
