Mike Marley, brother of my childhood friend Sandy Marley, gave me his grandmother's pound cake recipe. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

One pound of butter
4 cups of sugar

4 cups of swans down cake flour 10x

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

One teaspoon of lemon extract

One teaspoon of almond extract

Topping

1 can of pineapple in Juice

1 cup of brown sugar

Half cup of butter

One third cup pineapple juice

Combine butter and sugar together and beat until thoroughly mixed. Separate egg yolks from whites. Mix yolks with butter and sugar. Mixing extracts. Apart beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Mixing flour to Sugar egg mixture. Fold flour into sugar egg mixture. Fold in egg whites.

Grease and flour sides of pound cake pan. Combine brown sugar and a half cup of butter in saucepan and melt. Add pineapple juice. Cook until boiling. Pour brown sugar mixture into the bottom of the  pound cake pan . top with pineapples. Pour cake mixture on top of pineapples. Do not pour in all of the batter. Drop pan flat onto counter a couple of times to level next year. Cook until done. Approximately 55 minutes.

This recipe makes enough cake batter for one cake and 10 muffins. don't put all of mixture into cake pan or it will overflow when cooking.
