SWEET + SOUR = Lemon Pound Cake

One of my many favorite memories is of my grandmother's pound cakes. These cakes always showed up at church functions, from selling dinners for the church building fund to a Church Tea or Social. Sweet, and soft and often accompanied with punch. Homemade punch and every preparer had their own special blend with ginger ale and pineapple juice providing the base. Pound cakes also made it's way to funerals, family reunions, Daytona Beach trips and train trips to Hartwell, Georgia, wrapped in wax paper along with fried chicken. Pound cake added a little sweetness to any occasion, even sad ones. And just the opposite, a pound cake would show up for your birthday, dedicated to only you. The simple things, and the sweetest things are right down Memory Lane.
