100th Post & Nutmeg Pound Cake

I wanted to make a cake for my 100th post and decided on Deeba's Nutmeg Pound Cake. I feel bad posting such an awful picture of this cake because it really did turn out beautiful and delicious! I used granulated sugar instead of the caster sugar and I think that reduced the fluffiness of the batter, so I was only able to get two layers out of it. The cocoa layer was such a different texture than the lighter layer, it was almost like a type of frosting. I did like the way the two flavors marbled on their own. This cake is so good with coffee!!! Thanks Deeba, for the great recipe!
