Whenever anyone would stop by my grandmother’s house to visit, she always had a sweet treat that she would offer when she served coffee to her guests. She even had a special spot on her kitchen counter where she kept those treats. We were never allowed to touch those “corner treats” because they were only for company. The smell of this apple walnut pound cake baking reminds me of Gramma and her treat corner.
Gramma and Grandpa always had a lot of drop in visitors on the weekends. When we saw friends wave as they came up the street, we would get excited, because we knew that after the hellos, hugs and handshakes, Gramma would go in to put a fresh pot of coffee on and everyone would follow her into the kitchen for a cup of coffee along with something sweet. We would wait patiently for ours and then run outside while the grownups had their visit.
Just a hint of sweet from the apples, crunch from the walnuts combined with luscious pound cake, it is perfect to serve any time of day with a steaming cup of coffee.
Gramma would have loved it.
