Grandma's Pound Cake

Grandma's Pound Cake

Ready in 1 hour

My grandma used to make this pound cake nearly every week. It's still my favorite cake.

"I liked it. Pound cake is called that for a reason. If grand mom made it that's why she used shortening. Cheaper that butter. I'm going to bake it again and use butter this time. I'm sure it will still be a good cake. Thanks grand mom "

Very, very, dry! I was very disappointed in this recipe. Needs butter badly!
