molly sims brooks stuber thomas jefferson cake 3 Even though I love my healthy version of pumpkin pie, one dessert I must, must, must make every Thanksgiving with my momma is Thomas Jefferson pound cake. It's light and fluffy, not to mention AB-solutely delicious. What I love more about the cake, however, is the fact that it's just such a family tradition. I've brought it from Murray, Kentucky to Los Angeles for my family, but there's nothing like making the cake in my home with my family. Love, love, love the fact that little Brooksie is our new taste tester now!
