A few days ago the March issue of Southern Living arrived in my mailbox and I have to say the cover was just stunning. It was the perfect welcome to Spring. I had to try the recipe for the cake shown on the cover, Strawberry Swirl Cream Cheese Pound Cake (click link to recipe). It just looked too good. My husband and sons said it was my best effort...EVER. Not "a really good cake"...but the best EVER! Take my word for it, these boys know their cake and if this is the best EVER, you should definitely try it!
It baked up beautifully and the only deviation I made from the recipe was that I had to bake it for 10-15 minutes longer than the recipe called for. Of course, that could just be my oven issue!
It is so nice to have a recipe turn out just as pretty as when it is staged for the magazine!
Now, I can't wait to try the Key Lime Pound Cake with Key Lime Glaze from the same article!
