I enjoy baking from scratch and sharing my treats with others. This recipe for nicely spiced pumpkin pound cakes one I've come to rely on. It's impossible to resist a slice topped with the sweet walnut sauce.
This cake's one I prepare frequently for Sunday dinner. I also make it for church meetings and to take to friends who are sick. It goes a long way—unless you have some real "chocoholics"!
I've been cooking as long as I've been married, for almost 30 years. My husband's the director of a Christian youth missionary organization, and our two children are 19 and 17.
We top off our Thanksgiving feast with this mellow, tender cake dressed up with a strawberry topping. Pound cake is a southern tradition, and I'm proud to say I've baked hundreds of them in 83 years. It's a pleasure to share my recipe.

You'll find this cake is good with ice cream, but that it's also delicate enough to serve small pieces for a tea.
My husband served in the military, and we spent 22 years moving around before "retiring" here. He's been a high school teacher, and I've been a wedding consultant. Now we're retiring again so we can have more time to spend with our two daughters and four granddaughters in the Midwest. "Grandpa" is looking forward to some good fishing!
Loaded with chewy dates and crunchy pecans, this cake is a "must" to take to family gatherings. The sweet and zesty orange sauce tops it off just right. This cake slices nicely and looks so appetizing served on a pretty plate.
Meet the Cook: At the summer tourist resort in Ontario my husband and I operate, we prepare all the meals for our guests. So I'm always trying out new recipes. Some of my favorites are from my CW issues.
We have two children, 22 and 18.
