Quick and Easy Pound Cake




This cake mix 'Comfort Cake' is just yummy so I had to share it with you!  I cook almost every night, but baking doesn't happen very often.  Anything quick and easy appeals to me and I wanted to make a treat before my son returned to college.  I rarely use cake mixes, because of the trans-fat.  But this mix is trans-fat free.  I saw it on the grocery shelf and had to give it a go.  Just add eggs, oil, butter and bake.  This cake lives up to its name.  Comfort in a box! 


 Here is my 'Comfort Cake', half eaten before I could photograph it.

 





Enjoy!

I luv pound cake. It brings a lot of good memories growing up. You have inspired me to bake something today.

I too have a small house which I wouldn't try for anything.

Laney, You are too funny, but so right! I love pound cake and I love Southern manner and how the approach life. One of my favorite movies is 'Steel Magnolias'. I only hope I have a little of the Southern spirit in me.

xo, Genevieve

...oh my goodness...some of those steel magnolias are definitely my relatives... (or maybe my relatives are saying that about me)in any event...that was one movie that was true to life...you can be sure if you are in the south...someone is either blessing your heart...hugging you...or feeding you pound cake...(toasted with real butter is the real way to eat pound cake)...hugs and blessings and all the pound cake you want...
