Bake someone happy with a delightful Orange jello pound cake. This recipe comes highly recommended by a Newport News gentleman. One day he was bragging about the delicious pound cake his wife makes for him. The next day he arrived with the recipe in hand.
“Here,” he said, “try this cake. It will melt in your mouth.” So I tried it…and he was right.
It is simple to prepare, but hard to keep in the house.
