Today is, besides Veteran’s Day, my father’s birthday. Of course I had to make him a birthday cake, and I chose a family favorite: Jack and Jill cake. To be honest, I don’t think anyone knows where the name came from, but it is a delightful variation of a yellow pound cake. Topped with light icing and some powdered sugar, this cake is AWESOME with ice cream, fruit or whipped cream. I used a single recipe in a 9″ round cake pan. This cake is also great as a bundt cake, but use a double recipe. I’ve also made mini bundt cakes with this recipe.
