Pound Cake Recipe from Old-Time Cookbook

I got this cookbook yesterday at the church rummage sale around the corner from the cottage and I absolutely love it.

This pound cake will be the first thing I will bake. Enlarge image for easier reading.

The nostalgic illustrations are wonderful.

I'm sure many of you are wondering why I've been posting so many recipes lately. Well it's because I now have to do all the cooking. My mother used to cook most of the meals and she still cooks my oatmeal in the morning. Her eyesight has deteriorated to the point that I am now the chief cook and bottle washer. I don't mind a bit, dutiful daughter that I am. I've been working on organizing all of my cabinets and I'm actually enjoying myself. That's the story.

What a great book Rosemary! I printed the Pound Cake recipe to try and I love it for the fact that there isn't a whole pound of butter in it! Just a half a pound. And it will be lighter as well with the beaten egg whites, yumm! I'll let you know if I try it, which might be this weekend.
Thanks for sharing!

This post only augurs well for your loyal fans dear Rosemary - your recipes are always the tops. I'm sure your dear Mum deserves to be the spoilee now after a life-time of being the spoiler!
