I love delving into old cookbooks. I have an entire shelf full of my grandmother’s classics…and finding a good old cookbook at the thrift store is like finding gold.
Lady Bird Johnson’s Lemon Cake is not just another cake. This is one of those old fashioned recipes that you have to make.
Simple pound cakes are one of my favourites. No, they don’t have a thick layer of peanut butter frosting nor a candy topping, but they do have a simple, sweet flavor that pairs well with a cup of coffee.
