I decided to make strawberry shortcake for Easter and searched online at the Food Network for a pound cake recipe. I had some old cookbooks from my dad’s church that I grew up in, but most of them called for Crisco and I’m just not a Crisco baker (sorry mom!). In fact, the one little can of Crisco I had in the pantry smelled rancid, so I had to throw it out. Do you cook with Crisco?? I grew up seeing Crisco in the pantry, but I just don’t use it.
So, this one looked like it would be good….and oh my, is it ever! Do not pay attention to all the butter and sugar. If you are making pound cake, you just can’t worry about the calories. It’s a special treat after all.
Here’s the link from Food Network and it’s a Paula Deen recipe, so you know it’s full of butter and totally delicious. The woman loves butter! You can click on the printable version and it prints out like a recipe card.
Southwest Georgia Pound Cake It has that crispy outside crust when it comes out of the oven.
With strawberries and whipped cream, it’s sinfully delicious. The family loved it. Enjoy!!
