Flavorful Friday

I made this recipe after receiving a Taste of Home magazine in the mail. This recipe appealed to me because I like cake but I do not care for frosting. I know its weird but its true. Anyway I love pound cake and this looked like another version of one. I made it and loved it. I took some to work and shared with co-workers and they were very pleased with the results. They always asked when I would make another one. I haven't made one in a very long time. I think I might make it some time this fall.
I thought the picture made it look like cornbread but it doesn't taste or have the texture of corn bread. It's a very delicious cake. You will not be disappointed. I suggest you go to the website and do a search if you want some frosting or topping for it. I saw one for a struesel like topping. The link is above!
