Rum Pound Cake


I can't remember an Easter as a child without a pound cake on the table. Its always been a tradition in my home. A tradition that I plan to carry on to my own family some day. Pound Cakes have been a staple in American households for years especially in the south. I decided to put a spin on this classic dessert by adding a little rum given to me by the folks at Old New Orleans Rum. The rum's spice compliments the buttery flavor of the traditional pound cake. I also added Greek yogurt to lighten it a bit. When you bite into this cake the moisture from the yogurt lets all of the flavors melt into your mouth. After tasting the overflow i had from the batter, it was hard to resist the urge to slice into the entire cake. This Rum Pound Cake recipe is heaven!
