Jello Pound Cake

As I was browsing through my yard sale find cookbook last weekend, I found this recipe.  When I was first married, this is the recipe I used to make a pound cake.  It was so easy to make and people always gave me compliments when I shared it with them.  My Mother starting using this recipe when I was at home and she would change the flavors of the jello which would give the cake different swirls of color.  As I read this, it brought back many family memories for me.
