This is, by far, the most delectable, most enjoyable, most fluffiest pumpkin pound cake I’ve ever eaten in my entire life.
As a Southerner who grew up surrounded by pound cakes galore, that is saying something.
It’s soft and moist (eek! Yes, I said it!), perfectly spiced, and oh so good.
Seriously…the hubs, my mother-in-law, and I all rushed for seconds before we could even pull the fork out of our mouth after the last bite of our first slice.
And we would’ve probably had more if we hadn’t been sucking back Chocolate Buttery Nipples all night.
Ok, sooooo…especially after that last comment regarding chocolatey you know whats, I must confess…my cousins and I have this joke…this dirty, filthy, absolutely horrifying, naughty, naughty, naughty family joke about pound cake….
And it is absolutely horrible yet completely hysterical yet incredibly immature but we love it yet it’s a secret so I can’t tell y’all about it because I just can’t…but I’m just DY-ING inside, laughing uncontrollably with myself as I type these awful innuendos about chocolatey buttery things-that-shall-not-be-named (again) and moist pound cake (eek!), and I just can’t help myself.
But I’m a lady…a classy lady…so I will not speak another word about it.
Bless my heart 😉
No, but really…I can’t tell you how many times I have been thrilled to see a giant pound cake cake in my midst, just to have a slice and take a bite into it a dense, dry, lump of flour cake that was saturated in almond extract.
*VOM* to the *IT*
In my opinion, there is absolutely nothing worse. A dry pound cake is just plain un-American, and I LOATHE almond extract and would rather jump into a vat of mayonnaise than eat the stuff.
Okay, not really, but I really do hate it.
But this pound cake?
This pound cake doesn’t even come close to even tip toeing around the word dry. Like seriously, it is amazing.
And the drizzling glaze….omg, the glaze…dribble, dribble, dribble, droooooooooooooooooooooool…
There are no other words.
Just make it…go make it right now.
