The Super Moist Pound Cake Your Neighbors Are Talking About

This Is The Cake Of All Cakes!

My grandma made the best pound cakes ever. She’s 97 years old so she doesn’t do much baking these days, but I still remember that incredible lemon pound cake she used to make when I was a kid. It was so amazing! You couldn’t take a bite without closing your eyes and sighing over how delicious it was. My mother definitely inherited grandma’s baking skills; her vanilla pound cake is so famous among family members that whenever we get together, we practically fight over the last piece!

For a while now I’ve been wondering if I could somehow combine these two favorite pound cake flavors. I’m not much of a cake-baker (ask my husband) but I was determined to make this work so that I could surprise my mom and grandma. I didn’t want to copycat either of their recipes but, instead, create something that had these familiar flavors with a twist.



I came across this promising pound cake recipe that was said to be super moist and flavorful.

It seemed so delicious that I decided to give it a try right away! Friends – the way our house smelled while this was baking in the oven… ahh-mazing! I was pretty sure some of our neighbors would march in and steal the cake before I had even had a bite! Keep the recipe at hand because people are going to be begging you for it!
