Noted cookbook author, Michael Stern, shared a recipe for Whipping Cream Pound cake from his book "Two For The Road." This recipe comes from an old friend of Elvis Presley, who loved this dish as a boy. As Michael says, "it's just creamy Southern comfort. In my opinion it's the ultimate pound cake!"
