I’ll never forget that “Pound Cake” is the title of a Van Halen song. My friends and I were once running late to a Van Halen concert at the Pacific Amphitheater, as Pound Cake was just starting to play. I can’t write what my friend said as we were running in, but I’ll never forget it. I like the song and the Cake.
Here I made the easy Betty Crocker Pound Cake Mix we’ve all seen in the grocery store for years. It’s good and simple, but I like to doctor them up differently each time. The mix makes two small loaves. This time I added Cinnamon to one and Lemon Zest to the other. I swirled both into the batter, then topped with leftover Streusel – I had made too much for a pie, so it came in handy here. Both turned out yummy and are great to have on hand for guests. Rock on.
