One of my friend’s grandmothers and a dear old lady from my church growing up…. she was an Expert Pound Cake Maker.

She was so good that she wrote a book – an actual cook book – called My Pound Cake Is Better Than Yours.

That’s the South for you… good food and a good sense of humor.

She asked all her friends to contribute their favorite pound cake recipes (mine is probably the chocolate sour cream pound cake, but don’t hold me to it!) and then she put them together in a book.

My friend Mollie still has it.

I don’t know if these recipes would pass Mrs. Edna’s taste test – and she’s with Jesus now so I can’t ask her – but I really think they would.
