Orange Pound Cake With Orange Cheese

Traditional Pound cake is made with one pound of butter, one pound of sugar, one pound of eggs, one pound of flour........ But now there are many variation in the recipe. I have tried many recipes for pound cake and I landed up with this recipe.... This is one of the best pound cake recipe.

I have made a orange version of it. Commonly in pound cake lemon is used but I have made it with orange. And to make it more orangeeee I serve it with orange cheese. When ever I bake pound cake I will make some extra because many desserts can be made form pound cake.

This is my contribution to AFAM - Orange... Sharmi of Neivedyam.... is hosting this month's event....All the best Sharmi
