YOU CAN’T STOP IT!
My grandma always baked everything from pies to cakes. We were always in awe of her desserts. When I was too small to cut my food myself, my grandpa would cut it for me and leave the cut-up pieces together, like a puzzle. In fact, that’s what he’d tell me. He’d say, “Now don’t break my puzzle.” Well, I didn’t want to disappoint him so I’d sit and stare at his “puzzle.” But my grandma would become upset. She’d just worked so hard to bake for us and here I was, staring at my piece of cake like a freak. “Eat your food!” she shouted. So I had to do what I had to do. I ate it. And then my grandpa would come back by and tease, “Oh! You broke the puzzle!” Ah, memories.
It’s hard to say which thing Grandma made the best. Everything was perfection. My brother and I went nuts for anything chocolate but we never ever turned down her pound cake either. This recipe here makes me think of Grandma. I don’t know if she used buttermilk in her recipe or not, but it wouldn’t surprise me. She was as classic as she was classy, and filled with southern charm, which is what a good pound cake should be like.
