If you like pound cake, you'll love this one. This works so well you'll be beating on your chest when
explaining to family and friends, "no salt, no baking powder, no chemicals." You can have fun with this one. It will sit out nicely for a rich snack
during the Super Bowl this month. It's also very good for other occasions including of all things: Breakfast. Cut them thinly, they are rich.
Easy to make, it works well with ice cream and a thick chocolate or raspberry sauce. Variations of the recipe including flavoring with grated orange
peel or a flavor of your choice.
