Vanilla Pound Cake

homemade vanilla pound cake

I know I have talked a lot about making memories with your families. I have posted a few times on Thinking Outside The Pot Facebook page desserts that you can make #Sundayfamilymemories with. Desserts always make family time even better for sure. We get together with my husbands family almost every Sunday for family dinner. There are 3 married brothers that live close. We all bring a dish to share with everyone each time we have dinner. I love being able to bring dessert. It kind of seems like a race to see who can call dibs on bringing dessert. Just kidding, but I try to say first when I have something new I want to share with everyone.

This week my mother in-law made some super yummy spaghetti. I was able to make this really great pound cake recipe. We share chickens with my in-laws and the chickens have been laying eggs like crazy lately. For that very reason I made this pound cake.  It takes about 6 eggs, so I was able to put a dent in our couple dozen eggs in our fridge. Cake made from scratch always seems so difficult to do, but this recipe is a perfect, easy and delicious cake recipe. Enjoy!
