I don’t know about you, but I love a good pound cake. This pound cake has TONS of great flavors. It has 5 to be exact. 🙂 Vanilla, Rum, Coconut, Butter, and Lemon. YUM! It tasted great! I highly recommend serving it with some vanilla ice cream and fresh berries way at your Memorial Day cookout.
This cake is great for a crowd. It can be made a day ahead of time. The cake will keep covered in an air-tight container for several days. My mother-in-law likes to freeze pound cake in slices so she has a sweet treat later. I think that is a brilliant idea!
