Family Circle Almond Pound Cake
This recipe has 8 ingredients in the cake and 3 in the topping. The total prep time is approximately 20 minutes and the bake time 1 hour and 5 minutes. All the ingredients are basic and most I already had in my pantry cupboard. I found that my cake took 10 minutes longer to completely bake, but part of that could be due to my disco-era oven. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
I really like how light this cake turned out. Everyone in my family enjoyed this cake, even the members that aren't big cake fans. The prep work is minimal and the cake goes together very quickly. This recipe could also easily be modified into a number of various pound cake variations such as chocolate, chocolate chip etc. The cake does dry out rather quickly, so it's best consumed within a day or two.A great simple, pound cake recipe.
