Cooking up Memories: Ma Harper's Cold Oven Pound Cake

Well, it seems like 4th times a charm with my pound cake recipes.  As I talked about when I made the Cream Cheese Pound Cake, I was gifted with 4 pound cake recipes and two of the 3 I had made were not great.  Since then I've been given a few other pound cake recipes, but still had to try out this fourth one and it turned out well!

This recipe is from my Aunt Sandy.  She is the oldest of my dad's 4 sisters and she gave me a few different recipes.  I decided to try my hand at this one to take to a Bible Study tonight and I think it turned out pretty well--it's at least cooked all the way through :)

I gathered all the ingredients

 and followed the recipe to a T--including sifting the flour and baking powder

 Then I set my kitchen timer and turned on the oven
A successful loaf!
