Spiced Pound Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
From the first time my mother baked this cake years ago, it became a family favorite. Fruit and spices add a twist to a traditional pound cake, and the glaze has a hint of lemon. You can substitute other flavors of baby food, like apricots, for the peaches. We often serve this dessert for Thanksgiving.
