Mom’s Pound Cake Recipe for Mother’s Day

 Mom's Pound Cake

A few weeks ago I had a bite of a pound cake that was sent to my boyfriend by a business associate’s grandmother. I was floored. It was buttery, nutty and all-around delicious. I had to have the recipe and went on a mission to find out more about the incredible cake. What I found was a unique, yet easy-to-follow recipe and a woman with a passion for both baking and family.

CC: When did you start making your famous pound cake?
The Grandmother, Mary Anne Mikula: Thirty-five years ago, I tasted a delicious cake at a party. My daughter was dating a young man who’s aunt had made the cake. After 6 months of asking him frequently to ask his aunt for the recipe, I finally got it. It took several batches and some tears before I perfected the cake. Occasionally the center sinks but it does not effect the taste. I am a mother of 7 children and sixteen grandchildren so I have always baked to keep costs down. My husband and family put in frequent requests to give these pound cakes as gifts.

CC: How has baking changed in your lifetime?
MAM: I find that the younger generation does not have the time to bake as frequently. Bakeries and supermarkets have a wonderful variety of bake goods that are often affordable and very tasty. Although most people can tell the difference between homemade and store bought, buying something rather than baking it seems to done more often but I think everyone appreciates getting something homemade!

CC: What was your favorite dish when you were growing up?
MAM: My mother made delicious beef stew and meatball stew, which I used to request for my birthday dinners!

CC: What would you like to eat on Mother’s Day?
MAM: Spaghetti and meatballs or salmon. I enjoy them both!
