Every single Christmas, without fail, my dear Aunt Dot would send us a couple pound cakes. She would bake 4-5 batches of these cakes, and would send them to us, wrapped in foil and tied with a red macrame cord, which she must have bought in bulk.
She took pride in baking these pound cakes, and of course, she would. Her recipe is a family recipe, that was written by her mother, along with a dear family friend. From there, the recipe was passed down to Aunt Dot, and then down to me.
I’m sharing the recipe today, along with a surprising secret ingredient!
