Swirly Marble Pound Cake Recipe



One of my all time favorite gifts for Christmas is to shop online for new kitchen toys, pans and gadgets. I got two of them last year and first thing I saw was this creative style pan to add to my large collection. Everyone complimented me on this cake it came out just perfect and we all love pound cake.
This was the perfect recipe for this pan.



It's called a swirly pan.  This pound cake came out so pretty I didn't want to cut it! It was really delicious and didn't need a bit of frosting. If you love pound cake you will love this version of my marble pound cake. 


A little dusting of powdered sugar is all that's needed. This can be served with various fresh fruit and sweetened whipped cream too and would make it another fabulous dessert!
