Always scrumptious, dependable and comforting, there’s nothing like a moist, rich slice of chocolate pound cake to brighten up those gray winter days.
Welcome to Two Belles
Southern Pound Cakes
One of my favorite questions is, “What exactly is a “Southern” pound cake?” It gets me to thinking about my childhood in Georgia and how the people and food and good times were all blended together like, well, a good pound cake batter. When you get right down to it, pound cake just is southern -- easy-going, soul-satisfying, comforting, sweet and a blessing to the heart.
The idea for Two Belles began with my mother, Louise. Her classic and much beloved butternut pound cake (the “Mama Louise") was a staple at every celebration and church potluck I can remember. Today, her warmth and wisdom go into every cake I make, and my daughter, Rosemary, is now learning about the joys of turning out a really good southern pound cake! I thank God for Mama Louise and for all the women who have blessed us in countless ways. Hope you enjoy a taste of our heritage!
Some of my favorite customers (and favorite people) are the members of our military.
As I come to the end of every holiday season, I am always amazed that hundreds of pound cakes arrive on time at their appointed destinations. What a wonder! But this Christmas, a real miracle happened when one pound cake ended up in the wrong place.
