Pound Cake

Paula sent this in as a regular submission. She writes:

This is an easy one. The ingredients are something usually in the cabinets and can be made quickly. Make ahead and freeze for those drop in guests… thaws in ½ hour. Ok.. let me guess, you will give it a two for difficulty because it’s baking… but.. again ONE BOWL…highly unlike me.

Yep. Gets a two for baking. Minute you put that baking thing in there... goes from one to two at least! This is an easy cake to make and certainly great for the guests. We are lazy. We buy cakes and cookies and small cakes from the great bakeries around here. But if you are not into bakeries or you just want a cake to have around for the kids and the drop-in guest this fits the bill! Pay attention to how Paula sent in her recipe. Utensils, Ingredients, Substitutions, and Directions. This is really important to allow us all to understand just what craziness Paula is cooking up for us! Seriously... now all Paula has to do is to start sending in PICTURES! (Come On Paula - it is about time for photos of these creations of yours!)
