Puttin’ on the Pounds

November 13, 2007

I told myself that this holiday season I would not gain any weight. Well, here it is, only the middle of November and I’ve already been in baking overdrive. Now, this wouldn’t be such a problem if I could resist eating all of the things I bake. I’ve tried and tried each year to have a little will power and have failed. So, I’ve finally decided that the only logical answer is that I have to work out to counteract my over indulgence of sweets during the last few months of the year. Tonight was not a holiday or special occasion, but I decided I wanted to bake anyway. I had made this pound cake once before but it wasn’t in my blog. This cake isn’t a soft pound cake but a little more “bread like” and dense. It has a really good flavor though. I really chose to make it because it was quick and easy, and I just wanted some dessert tonight. So here it is. The pound cake that will ultimately be the beginning of me putting on the pounds this year. Hopefully I can talk myself into getting on the treadmill tomorrow to avoid that. We’ll see. ; )

    I love pound cake. It isn’t too rich, and you can either eat it plain or add other ingredients. It looks so moist, I most definitely will have to try this!
