Here is a recipe sent to me by Kathy aka RCCruisers... This is what she says about this delicious recipe...
This is Mother's pound cake recipe that I use so much. I thought some of you might like to try it. The evaporated milk really makes it moist and rich. She had a birthday on Sunday, April 16 and was 81 years old. She is our rock, and keeps us all going!!!
Love ya... Kathy
