Pound Cake is Love
Later in life my mother took over the pound cake birthday tradition. (I'm so loved!) She searched the Internet for the perfect recipe, and she tested recipes on my father. Once she mistakenly added almond extract - I had to tell her that's incorrect! Finally my mother found a perfect pound cake. The recipe is called "Elvis Presley's Favorite Pound Cake."
My mother baked the cake this year and we froze sections of the cake. I have no self control. I just took out 1/4 of a pound cake from the freezer and ate it for breakfast. When I eat the cake I think of my grandmother, my mother, and how lucky I am to feel so loved, valued, and appreciated.
