Marbled Pound Cake

Clearly, Pinterest wasn’t a thing in the early 90’s, but my mom was a huge clipper of recipes from magazines, newspapers, boxes, etc.  Even now, there’s still an enormous pile of clippings in the living room at their house I *love* sifting through every time I come over.

A few months back, I came across a page out of Food and Wine magazine for a marbled pound cake–this was actually one of the first things I baked all by myself and I was kind of obsessed.  Cake for breakfast, people.

Clearly I needed to make this happen again.  I mean, if it’s finally warm enough to have coffee on the patio in the morning, I really need something sweet to dunk.
