This pound cake is sweet, dense, buttery, and rich – as it should be! The secret to perfection is baking it starting off in a cold oven. You won’t believe the difference that makes.
This is the perfect recipe for dolloping with whipping cream, ice cream, berries, or dipping in chocolate fondue. It’s a classic cake that everyone should have in their baking arsenal.
The key ingredient in pound cake, of course, is BUTTER. Pound cake gets its name from the fact that it originally contained a full pound of butter. This recipe uses three sticks – one stick shy of the full pound.
