Today I am going to bake a pound cake. I love to make pound cakes, they are my favorite thing to bake. This one will be a little special because we have company coming and I want it to be just right for them!
Since we don't have our own chickens any longer I haven’t had free-range eggs to use in my cakes in quite a while but I recently found a new source for the eggs, therefore today I will be using beautiful brown, green and blue eggs. The yolks make the batter and the cake a lovely shade of yellow and they also make a difference in the flavor of the cake too!
I always get everything I need together before I start making the cake; the butter, the sugar, the eggs, the flour and a few more ingredients too. As I bake, my grandmother will also be with me in my memories. I always think of her delicious cakes with the crusty top when I bake. I guess those are my first memories of a pound cake. So it’s time for me to get started now. Maybe one day you can come for a visit and I can make a pound cake for you too!!
