A big slice of pound cake with a cup of tea makes for the perfect evening. I really enjoy this almond pound cake drizzled with Nutella. Such a delicious treat. One of the things about this recipe that I love is its versatility. You can switch around the essences to make a variety of flavors. I have used orange, lemon and anise. Each of them tastes different and sooo good. My sister gave me this recipe and I changed it a bit and with her permission, I am sharing it with you'll today. I hope this becomes a favorite for you too XO
