Since we are originally from Texas, we naturally love sweet potatoes, but this pound cake deserves to be a tradition in any home, whether you’re from the South, East, North or West. My Montana husband rancher loves it and I get great revues from ladies I’ve treated with it at various social events.
My mom has been making this cake for 30 years. Dotted with chips and topped with a chocolate glaze, it is absolutely divine, I once got up at 5 a.m. to bake a cake before work so the ladies in my office could enjoy it warm from the oven. They loved it!
This pound cake is incredible and completely reminds me of fall with every bite. Using sparkling apple cider in the batter and the glaze gives it a delicious and unique flavor. I love everything about it! —Nikki Barton, Providence, Utah
My grandmother gave me my first cake recipe—a pound cake using 7UP—and her grandmother gave it to her. On top of being delicious, it represents family tradition, connection and love. —Marsha Davis, Desert Hot Springs, California
Our state grows excellent peaches, and this is one recipe I'm quick to pull out when they are in season. It's a tender, moist cake that receives rave reviews wherever I take it.

I got this recipe from a woman who came to my rummage sale. We got to talking about zucchini-she didn't know what the big squash could be used for. So I sent her some of my favorite zucchini recipes and, in return, she mailed me the recipe for this cake. It's absolutely delicious and I've made it often.
