Dessert of the week - Pound cake

It's finally Thursday night when Michelle and I tried on new recipe. This pound cake recipe came out really nice, moist and tasty, but I have to say the time baking varies based on the Watt of your oven and the thickness of your bundt cake.  Just make sure to set the time around 5-7 minutes less, and check the cake with toothpick all the time during the last minutes. 
Also, have some fun designing on top of the batter if you have some chocolate syrup.

Good luck and have fun baking.
