This is one out of a bunch of cakes that my mother baked for us boys. This is a very good and easy recipe to make.

For the Pound Cake
2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 small can crushed pineapple, with juice
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

For the Glaze:
1/4 stick (28 grams/1 oz./2 tbsp.) margarine
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. lemon extract

For the Pound Cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan.

Combine all pound cake ingredients, mix well. Pour batter into prepared tube pan and bake in preheated 350 degree F (180 C) oven for 1 hour (or less depending on your oven).

For the Glaze:
Combine all glaze ingredients in top of double boiler and cook until slightly thick. Pour over pound cake while hot.

*Note From Diana's Desserts
If desired, dust pound cake with confectioners' sugar when cake has cooled completely.

Makes 12-15 slices.

My mom made this also:-) You may want to try separating the eggs, add the yolks to the batter then whip the egg whites until nice and fluffy or better known as stiff. Add the egg whites last. Will make pound cake fluffyer:-)
