Malcolm asked me to teach him to cook. So I asked him what he wanted to learn to make thinking he was going to say something like Grilled Cheese. He says just my favorites: Barbeque Chicken, Macaroni and Cheese, Greens and Pound Cake! Sunday dinner for his first lesson? Chile I don’t know.
So we began by letting him watch while I made his favorites. When it was time to work on the Pound Cake I let him help. He was extra careful as he measured the flour and sugar as we covertly worked on fractions. He kept the timer when we mixed it and I showed him how to set the timer on the oven. He was absolutely in his zone checking on the cake to see if it was ready only to be disappointed when I told him we had to wait for it to cool before we could cut it.
This cake reminds me of the dump pound cake I used to make with my grandmother every holiday. She was famous for her bins of cookies and cakes. Glad I got to teach Mally and share it with yall!
