Cream Cheese Pound Cake. A gold standard among Southern desserts. Butter, eggs, sugar, flour, vanilla extract and a slight tang from cream cheese. Make this cake now for Thanksgiving next week. It's better if it "ages" for several days.
Fresh Apple Cake. When it comes out of the oven, you pour over a mixture of butter, buttermilk, whole cane sugar, and vanilla and let it soak in. The result? A caramel-like buttery outside everyone will fight for.
