A little Monday Motivation + Great Pound Cake Recipe
Who likes Mondays? I’m not surprised by the bad fame that they have, but I think it’s sad that we hate so much one day. Because, in the end, it’s just another day, right?

Well, to make up for this, I bring you a couple of motivational quotes + a new recipe! Isn’t that great? 🙂

If these didn’t cheer you up… think that there are just a few more hours of Monday left. Before you realize, you will be off work and enjoying the evening.
One of the things that you could decide to do to make up for the day is cook this amazing pound cake. I am telling you, you will be enjoying it way before it is done! Just wait ‘til the dough is in the oven and the smell spreads around the house.
For this recipe you will need
Preheat oven to 325º. Sift the flour and add sugar, butter, milk, eggs and vanilla (in that order). Mix until the dough is well blended together.
Pour and bake for 1h 30 mins or until the cake is baked. You can check sticking a knife in the cake; it will be cooked when the knife comes out clean.
Let cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.
This recipe is very easily customizable: you can add chocolate chips, raisins or fruit to the mix before cooking, and you can cover the cake with chocolate ganache or any other frosting that you like.
Easy, right? The only thing left is to take a couple of pictures and post them on Instagram or Twitter, tag me and use #FMWLrecipes so I can see it!
