Since I had ALL the ingredients on hand for this marble pound cake from the Beekman 1802 Heirloom Dessert cookbook, I decided it was time to use my new cookbook. The cookbook has vintage recipes reflecting the "Four Seasons".  The cake was easy enough to bake as a weeknight treat, or even to have on hand during the holiday season for unexpected guests. The recipe was different than other marble pound cake I have made. It included bourbon and lemon zest . Joe and I have been enjoying a slice after dinner with coffee. I'm going to experiment by serving it with a decadent chocolate ganache glaze and a small dollop of either clementine, maple or peppermint ice cream. It was also a good excuse to use my Nordic Ware Heritage Bundt Pan that I love. 

I'm joining a group of folks who have been baking their way through the cookbook. 

If you are interested, feel free to join us over at the Beekman Bakes blog.

I am joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.

Thank you for stopping by!


  1. day I need to learn to bake....LOL
    Love, Mona

  2. Your cake turned out beautiful Debbie! Marble Pound Cake sounds like something I'd really love:@)

  3. Hi Debbie, this sounds like so much fun . . . baking your way through this wonderful cookbook. I have such a problem with over eating, that I would gain 50 pounds by the time I was through the book, especially the dessert section. Baking a few Christmas cookies is all that I can handle, then it's the yearly January diet, LOL. I am going to enjoy visiting and watching you as you take on this cooking adventure.
    Have fun!!!
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  4. I just reserved a copy of that cookbook from our library to so I could see if I needed to order a copy. Marble pound cake sounds delicious and a chocolate ganache would be a wonderful idea, Debbie! I need an excuse to get my heritage pan out too :)

  5. Your cake is gorgeous, my friend, and I can just picture you and Joe enjoying a slice in the evening. I like the idea of some chocolate ganache. In fact, I could go for a slice right now for breakfast!! xo

  6. I used to love marble cake! I would love a slice of yours, haven't made it in years.
    I gave in and bought another Nordic pan. It's an addiction, I know!
    Hope all is well there.

  7. What a beautiful cake and the marble makes it so special. Chocolate ganache puts if over the top.


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
