if you want pound cake, read this

for the last few years, i've made pound cakes at christmas. it's my stepfather's mother's recipe and it's to die for.

so if you're reading this, you're my friend, and i want to give you some pound cake.

no, it's not even remotely low carb, low fat, or sugar free.

if you want some pound cake, sound off in the comments.

Oh goody, Georg asked for some. I want to taste this legendary pound cake, but I don't want a whole cake, just a slice.

I used to make a fabulous orange pound cake (recipe from Moosewood Cookbook) but for some reason I could never manage chocolate. It always ended up dry.

depending on how many people request it (and i usually bring some to my family as well) it'll probably be half a cake per household, not a whole cake.

it dawned on me last night that i don't have a bundt pan-- i always used to use craig's! my first thought was "goodie, i get to go shopping for myself!" and then my second thought was "umm.... stores might be kind of crowded...."

should be interesting :)

Oh man, that's good pound cake.

the bundt pans were cheaper than i anticipated, so i bought two. since i always make pound cake in "bulk", making two at once is very efficient, because you have to put them into a cold oven and they take over an hour to bake, which means you can really only do one batch per evening, or maybe two batches on a weekend if you're organized.

anyway, those who requested cake and are in town are starting to recieve cake...
