Basic Pound Cake
A tweaked, lighter version of the classic pound cake.
This wonderfully rich and buttery treat with its golden brown crust was called "pound cake" because the original recipe contained one pound each of butter, eggs, sugar, and flour. The recipe has been tweaked over the years yet the cake remains a delicious after-meal standby. You can enjoy a plain slice, with just a dusting of powdered sugar, or with whipped cream on the side!
