just love baking with my daughters and I like finding recipes so simple that they can actually prepare a lot of the stuff by themselves. So how to entice your kids to stay around and help in the kitchen? By baking a cake of course! 

This pound cake is fun because it pleases both vanilla and chocolate cakes lovers. Win-Win!

This pound cake is a total treat, it’s not the healthiest and lightest recipe on this blog but hey! You gotta treat yourself a bit sometimes too 🙂

My husband likes to eat it with a dollop of vanilla yogourt on top, but it’s also perfectly good on its own…
