A comforting cake for a crazy day, a bad week, or just as a delicious treat.
By Jerri Green
It has been a rough week with our little family. Everything from a funeral to a broken toe to a couple of trips to the emergency room – not for the toe – you name it, we have been through it. It is the kinda week that that you need dessert – and lots of it. Enter this wonderful vanilla pound cake. Simple, tasty, and comforting.
I found this recipe in William Sonoma’s The Cookbook For Kids: Great Recipes for Kids Who Love to Cook. I often find recipes for my carnivore husband in here (he really does have the palate of a five year old) and my little omnivore can help me make the dishes too, assuming he can stop banging his head on everything (seriously, the bruises are so bad I am pretty sure someone is gonna call CPS on me the next time we go to the grocery).
This sweet dessert is good even on a bad day – or week as the case may be. Trust me.
