Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful

This recipe was printed on the back of Royal Service, a Christian Women's magazine, back in the late 80's or early 90's. I still have this back cover, and it is what I use when baking this cake!
I've made it many times over the years, and it is always a hit! 
I am thinking it was the first pound cake I ever tried to make!
This would be a yummy dessert for Easter!
