I love pound cake, if only for it's buttery and fluffy goodness, but when piled high with fresh whipped cream and sweet summer berries, it changes everything. I recently made this vanilla pound cake recipe for a 4th of July barbecue, it was absolutely delicious. What makes this recipe so fluffy is largely due to the fact that you beat it with a mixer for eight minutes, sure it is a lot of time, but the pay-off is huge. I definitely recommend making it for your next summer picnic!
