One of my very favorite desserts to make is my Nana's pound cake. The recipe is one of those passed down in the handwriting of my beloved grandmother on a yellowing page of her cook book. This book is one of the most treasured possessions I own; although she has been gone for many years now, every time I make her pound cake, I feel her in the kitchen next to me. Nothing is more quintessential MSC than a recipe such as this; however, to be truly MSC, there has to be a twist. In celebration of the autumn season here in the South, the recipe calls for pumpkin and spice. The following recipe, although reluctant to give, is my grandmother's deliciously light and moist pound cake with a fall twist. I hope it brings as much joy to your family as it brings to me every time I make it. I love you Nana Handy!
