My girlfriend and I went to Corolla because I wanted a glimpse, and hopefully, a photograph or two of the wild horses. I decided that I wanted to have a picnic, so I knew the cake would have to be travellable(I know, I know, no such word).
There was buttermilk in my fridge that needed to be used, so that ingredient in the recipe was a must. No frosting needed and moist without it, most definitely! Since I had been craving cinnamon, it had to show up, otherwise it would just be thrown in. Looking through Tish Boyle's The Cake Book I came across her recipe for Cinnamon Swirl Buttermilk Pound Cake and found it to be the perfect take along dessert.
This pound cake was so moist that I could eat piece after piece and not need to down a large cup of ice milk(yes I have to have ice in my milk to drink it). I think the next time, though, the cinnamon portion will just be cinnamon sugar instead of the flour, butter, cinnamon sugar mixture.
All in all, this recipe is a picnic must. Oh, who am I kidding, it's a must no matter the occasion.
