Holiday Pound Cake

This is a favorite of myself and family, especially for the holidays. Due to its richness and fat content we only allow ourselves this decadent treat a few times a year. The recipe is listed as a favorite of Elvis's for many years and as per the listed ingredients you can see why.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
