I have tried many pound cake recipes over the years, trying to duplicate the almond pound cake I enjoyed as a child. Some were good, while others totally missed the mark; then I came across this Almond Vanilla Pound Cake recipe titled “Mayrene’s Almond Vanilla Pound Cake” as I was going through my mom’s recipe box. Mayrene was my great aunt, and she was a fabulous baker. When I returned home, I made the pound cake and all the wonderful flavors that I remembered as a child appeared in my mouth. This recipe is hands down the best pound cake I have had.
The cake is moist, flavorful, and dense without being dry. The best part is that it only calls for 10 ingredients that are common staples in your pantry. Give this recipe a try; you won’t be disappointed.
