So here's the close up.
I'm embarrassed to admit that this is the only piece left (it IS much bigger than it looks, it's at a "skinny" angle!). But hey, it was made Thursday afternoon, and Paul did take a chunk to work, and I gave a hunk to my Mom.....and, and, and.....
Oh hell, we're just a bunch of gluttons. And I wonder why I'm thirty pounds overweight.
So, now that you all have an up-in-your-face but-you-can't-eat-it photo, what say ye about the texture? I have noticed another thing though; the longer the cake sat, the better it got.
So, is it that I'm just used to the twinkie-like consistency of commercially sold pound cakes? Possibly. But honestly, I no longer care about trying to match that texture anymore. This cake is good enough as is......imperfect looking as it is!
