Vanilla Almond Pound Cake

Vanilla Almond Pound CakeWith all the cakes and cupcakes that I bake, I realized recently that I’ve never made a pound cake! I love to eat pound cake, but I usually just buy it pre-made from Costco instead of making my own. This recipe for vanilla almond pound cake was the perfect recipe to get me started.

It’s so simple and easy to make, and it uses ingredients I always have in the house. My favorite thing about pound cake is that it’s so rich and moist, while still tender, and this vanilla almond pound cake has that perfect pound cake texture! Did I mention it also tastes fantastic? It is seriously delicious!
