I think I'm having a love affair with pound cake lately. There's no other cake that offers so much "bang for the buck": sweet without being cloying, dense, chewy, with a thick heavy crumb that never fails to please me. After making my Buttermilk Pound Cake several times over the last months, I decided to add cream cheese and bananas to this version and see what happens. Lots of good things, that's what happens. Yum!
The one funny from this experiment was when I asked the hubs to move the cake back to the cabinet from the table as my back was acting up. He did, and as he did, he sort of grunted "Ooomph." I said 'Well, it is called "POUND" cake." He said, "Yeah, MANY pounds cake." True. But that didn't stop either of us from gobbling down our "test" pieces for a second!
