It depends on how much you use of the other ingredients. The Wikibooks Cookbook says:

  • � pound Flour
  • � pound Butter
  • � pound Eggs (4 eggs)
  • � pound Sugar
  • � pound assorted dried fruit (Currants, Sultanas, and Raisins, with perhaps a lesser quantity of Glac� cherries).

The traditional recipe doubled the quantities above, and eliminated the fruit. The name comes from the fact that it used a pound each of sugar, flour, butter and eggs. Happy baking.

Most bags of sugar come in 4 pound, 5 pound or large warehouse sizes like 10 pounds and 25 pounds. Most people purchase a 4 or 5 pound bag on a regular basis.

Since "fat" is based on eating too many calories, the cake with the lesser calorie value would be less fattening. Per unit, fat holds twice as many calories as carbohydrates (sugar) so the fat free should have less calories given the same size slice.
