TWD Rewind: Perfection Pound Cake

Sorry about not posting much this week - I've been sick and not feeling up to baking. But, today I had some spare time and decided to make the banana bundt cake. I had just softened the butter when I realized that I didn't have enough bananas, so I frantically searched for another recipe using two sticks of butter and other basic ingredients we had. This was the one that looked the best that had also been made by TWD in the past, so I decided to make it. I don't regret it.
The only thing that is the slightest bit annoying about this recipe is that the butter has to be creamed with the sugar for 5 minutes, which is tiring if you are using a hand mixer like I was (I was too lazy to take out the stand mixer :D  ). 
This cake was rated an A. It is so good! You can really taste the butter and sugar, but not in an overpowering way. This would probably be good with lemon in it and a glaze, as well. I highly recommend this recipe to anyone who wants an easy, delicious cake. As always, if you want the recipe, you can buy the book or you can find it here. Enjoy!

Your dad brought the pound cake into the office this week and it was truly perfection! We loved it! Thanks, Sophia. And I'm going to go home and try that brownie recipe.
