I’ve finally gotten around to making this cake for you all! I hope everyone is well and has been enjoying their summer.

This is another one of those old-time favorites that my grandmother has always cooked.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any special stories to tell you about me and my grandmother baking together. I did more eating than baking with her lol.

You see my grandmother liked to get up early in the morning and cook. I am not an early riser so by the time I got up the food was already done.

My grandmother has those old school curtains in her bedrooms and they block out all of the light so I could easily sleep until at least 10 o’ clock. Well, nevertheless the cooking bug has hit!

So let me tell you about this cake…

You can’t tell by the pictures, but this cake has a light drizzle. The cake lacked luster in the picture so I added the powdered sugar. I actually enjoyed the addition of the powdered sugar.

I think it made the cake that much more fun to eat. As far as the drizzle goes you can add as much or as little as you want.

 

I added half and once that hardened I poured the rest of over the cake and then transferred the cake to another plate so it wouldn’t sit in the extra drizzle.

But let me tell you, the drizzle that coated the bottom of the cake was everything. This cake was so addicting that I had to give half of it away and really had to limit myself to one slice a day.

As you all may have noticed, this cake and the sour cream pound cake recipe are lightly colored on the inside. Some may be used to pound cakes being a little more yellow.

Well guess what, the secret to getting that yellow color is food coloring. I don’t find it necessary so I don’t add food coloring to my cakes.

As long as they are brown and fully cooked, I’m good! I hope you all enjoy this recipe.

    This sounds delicious! Quick question: I don’t have a bundt pan, obviously it wouldn’t be as pretty, but would it work in a loaf pan?

    • Ashley says:

      Thank you! I’m sure a loaf pan would work as well. Depending on the size of the pan, you may have a little extra “batter” left, but you can always pour that into a smaller pan.
