Cake Lady: Pound Cake


I've been thinking about cake ladies. You know them? The ladies in your town who supply their special cakes whenever there's a funeral, birth, or potluck.

In my own life I would turn to Carol for Italian Cream Cake or Fresh Strawberry Cake, or Phyllis for a cheesecake. I've been known, myself, to come up with a raspberry-filled chocolate layer cake when the need arises.

And in honor of a cake-filled life I'm baking my way through Cake Ladies (see the link above), and I started today with this pound cake.

I long to live somewhere that has cake ladies. Such a charming and sweet tradition, and one we didn't have in Connecticut where I grew up, or here in Europe where I'm living now.

I can see that your blog is going to be very helpful to me during Lent - ha ha!

Oh how I miss small town life! I don't know how far away you are, but I'm available as a taste tester. ;0)

I thought Clara was the cake baker in your house...

Personally, I consider myself a cookie lady. And that is what I've been called on more than one occasion.
