This is a recipe from my friend Kendee that I’ve had for years. I have known Kendee since I was a kid and she was making good food back then too. You know those friends that everything they make is always amazing. Everything she touches turns to gold. She has her own recipe blog called Pimp my Dinner.

It was so good that when I told John I made it he laughed and said, “Ya, you made it” while making quotation marks with his fingers. He thought I bought it and was trying to pull it off as my own. It’s pretty much heaven. So moist and full of flavor. You will not be disappointed.

I know it might sound like cheating making a pound cake from a cake mix but I promise no one will know!
