Here’s a recipe for a simple pound cake. It comes out perfect every time and takes ingredients most of us have in our pantry:
SAND MOUNTAIN POUND CAKE
2 ½ cups self-rising flour 2 cups sugar
4 eggs 1 ½ cups oil
1 cup chopped pecans (can be omitted) 1 cup coconut
½ teaspoon coconut flavoring 1 teaspoon vanilla
1 small can CRUSHED pineapple and juice
Mix all ingredients well in large bowl. Pour into greased large bunt pan or pound cake pan. Cook @ 325 for 1 hour and 20 minutes (be sure to preheat your oven)
1 ½ cup sugar
3 teaspoons coconut flavoring
¾ cup hot water
Boil all 1 minute. When cake is done, pour glaze over cake while still in pan and return to oven for 3 minutes. Let cake cool completely in pan before removing.
And here’s a couple of photo ops we couldn’t pass up!
Here is Joe Yates and Walter, snapped right before Joe was taking his son to see his new college and attend orientation. You must be so proud, Joe!
Here’s Arthur Ivey, Save More delivery driver, assisting Steven “Smitty” Smith with loading a part on to his truck. Two long-timers, both Smitty and Arthur have been with Save More for 28 +/- YEARS!!! Wow, congratulations to you both!
This photo, shot about 30 years ago, is a photo of somebody special’s wedding. The groom and best man still work at Brandywine, anybody know who these handsome guys are???
A big THANK YOU goes to Tucker Connick who is an avid gardener every summer and who brought us a bunch of yummy vegetables again this year, thanks Tucker!
And thank you to everyone for another great month! We’re slowly winding down on the clunkers and wish to thank everybody once again for all the hard work. We are successful but wouldn’t be where we are today if not for our employees. Thank you from the Meinhardt family.
