My mom may have found this recipe in a Southern Living about 25-30 years ago. It is one of our family's favorites, and it's also a favorite with some of our neighbors. When we had Thanksgiving at our friends' house a couple of years ago, my friend requested my mom bring this pound cake! It's hard to beat the orange-cranberry combination, especially when it's in a tall and proud pound cake!
