It’s Secret Recipe Club time again! We took a month off for the holidays – it’s such a busy time for all of us – but now we’re back in fine form. And I’m so excited to bring the blog I was assigned to your attention – Nicole at I Am A Honey Bee. What a great blog filled with amazing baked treats. I’m usually drawn to the photos as well as the recipes on a site, and this time I was captivated by photos of her brand new daughter too. She is absolutely adorable – and her middle name is a family name in my own family: Olivia. One of my all-time favorite names. If I’d had a daughter, that’s what I wanted to name her.
After narrowing down the recipes to choose from, I settled on what might be the best pound cake I’ve ever made – Nicole’s Sour Cream Pound Cake. It was so moist and soft, but with a nice crust. I added some orange and maple flavors, but it’s really not necessary. Otherwise I didn’t change a thing. This is definitely my new go-to cake for dessert, but I think it makes a great breakfast cake too, along with some fruit and a cup of coffee.In fact I made a bunch of small loaves and froze them just so I can have them on hand. You just never know when you might need a cake.
