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!
