Marbled Pecan Pound Cake Recipe
When hosting a crowd for the holidays, make it easy on yourself and choose recipes, such as this Marbled Pecan Pound Cake, that can be made ahead. Pound cakes are popular not only for their delicious taste, but because you can make them in advance and freeze them, if necessary. This recipe was sent in by Billie Taylor of Wytheville, Virginia, and was published in the December, 1993, issue of Southern Living. An instant hit, home cooks love the chocolate marbling on the inside—it gives the cake an extra special touch for the holidays. Serve this cake plain, or dress it up with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream, sugared cranberries, or a drizzle of chocolate ganache.
