Pound Cake

Pound cake is a popular cake that gets its name from its traditional ingredient measurements; one pound each of flour, butter, eggs and sugar. However, since the traditional cake when baked is large, the quantities in the measurements are commonly decreased to make the cake smaller. As long as you use the same amount of each of those ingredients on a 1:1:1:1 ratio, the cake will identical to the traditional pound cake recipe. Modern cooks generally measure ingredients in grams or cups and many have forgotten how pound cake got its name. Usually baked as a loaf or in a tube pan, pound cake is served with either a dusting of powdered sugar or drizzled with glaze and sometimes with a coat of icing.
