Yesterday I spent  the day with my grandkids and my mom. We were able to spend a little time outside later in the afternoon. Katie likes to help her little brother. Sometimes he likes it, sometimes he doesn’t… Aunt Marti brought over a new garage sale find. Tyler wanted to stay in all day.



It was chilly and windy early in the day. Since it was chilly I decided we should bake something, and since I had some strawberries begging to be eaten in the frig.

I searched for a recipe for pound cake to put under the strawberries. I found the recipe here and changed it using whole wheat and sucanat. Using the whole wheat and the sucanat gives it a darker color. I think it weighed more than a pound…ha ha.

The original recipe called for baking it an hour. I took mine out at 55 minutes. I think you should check at 45 or 50 minutes. 5o would have been perfect. It tasted yummy.

    Oh, that looks good. I’ve never had whole wheat pound cake but am willing to give it a try.

    Great photos of the kids. I love this: “Sometimes he likes it, sometimes he doesn’t.” That’s exactly how my second grandson feels about his big bro helping him out.

    Used coconut sugar and a touch of molasses to sweeten and plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. Otherwise, I followed this recipe exactly. Lol 🙂 Turned out great! Thanks for sharing this.
