TWD: Vanilla Pound Cake

Thought I should get back on the TWD schedule. Weekend schedules have been crazy and I have not been able to join in for a while. Today was a public holiday and I had just flown back from Siem Reap, and since I had a free afternoon, I decided to make this fairly simple recipe.

The vanilla pound cake was good - tender and easy to make - a good way to ease back into TWD.

Do have a look at the other attempts at this cake here.

a really light and airy  lemon chiffon cake
*Note: do not get thrown by the fact that the addition of water is not in the list of ingredients. Just follow along and add it in.

"It is so easy to give in, so easy to accept; to be indifferent if you are not hurt. It is the loneliness of taking a courageous decision which is the worst part, the necessity for turning yourself against the laissez-faire of the crowd. And in return for being an individual you get nothing but pride."
~ Alan Moore, A Late Education
