My only experience with pound cake as a kid was from the boxed Sara Lee stuff. My grandma would secretly buy a loaf from the Chinese supermarket and sneak some to me before dinner. Boy were they a treat! Thinking back, those rectangular prism cakes were actually kind of creepy. How did they manage to get it to a perfectly brown rectangle? It doesn’t have a single crack at the top! Life is full of mysteries.
This is easily my go-to cake to bring to work or picnics, and makes a great “just because” cake. It’s delicious, easily transportable, and the perfect sharing size! I seriously can’t think of one reason to dislike this.
