Powdered Sugar Pound Cake
With its fine crumb and almost candylike almond-studded shell, this is pound cake gone to fancy class--but still pound-cake-easy. A reader known only as G.L. from Bremerton, Washington, gave it to us in 1963, and we've served it over and over again at our staff parties since.
