5 Flavored Pound Cake



Last summer, while on vacation with our friends, we stopped at a road side park for lunch.

My friend pulled out this treat for dessert.

Wow!  It was so good!

The parking lot was busy.

The scenery was beautiful.

The weather was great.

We were having a fantastic time as we traveled.

We complained that there wasn't enough dessert for everybody to have 2 pieces!

I can't remember where she got the recipe from, but she was kind enough to share it with me.

Now, I share it with you!

1/2 cup Crisco (or additional butter)
