It’s National Pound Cake Day!!! … Five Hyped-up Recipes You Shouldn’t Pass Up!

Happy Wednesday Luv-lies!

According to the weatherman, I’ll be stuck in the house, again, tomorrow due to another round of snowfall!

Made sure that I picked up all of my comfort foods  today before hunkering down for tomorrow’s storm.

I’ve been trying to limit my snacking, especially while I’m snowed in.  I wonder why we snack much more when we’re stuck indoors?  Don’t you?

Well, today is National Pound Cake Day and although I won’t be celebrating it with a cake of my own, I feel compelled to give this simple, but delish dessert a #ShoutOut!

This lip-licking version is made over at The Pioneer Woman Cooks. Here secret ingredient to assuring that it’s moist? … Pop!(Not sure what ‘Pop’ is? She’ll let you know when you hustle over there for the recipe)

Whenever I want to know the history of food, I always take a hop-skip and a jump over to John-Bryan Hopkins’  fun and information filled { not to mention the mouth-watering foods that are featured} Blog.

Although I know how the Pound Cake got its name, here are a few 3 Interesting  Facts from his blog:

* The British are said to be the creators of the Pound Cake

*  On your next trip to Britain, when ordering Pound Cake , you’re more apt to be understood if you ask for it by either ‘Sponge cake’ or ‘Madeira cake’

* When in Germany, order  Eischwerkuchen.  It’s very similar {in ingredients} to the Pound Cake

 The traditional, seven ingredient Pound Cake recipe may suit you just fine.  But I have Five hyped-up Pound Cakes that you may not want to pass up.

1.  Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake
