Traditionally pound cake was made with pound of each ingredient: flour, butter, eggs and sugar. Taking into account, that pound is almost 500 g, cake made with such an amount ingredients could last for the family for over a week …. J
Now we called ‘pound cake’ cake made with the proportion 1:1:1:1, but as the recipes are changing all the time, you can’t be sure anything.
Today than, a cake which is very moist and delicious! We’ve been eating it for a few days and until the end it hasn’t lost its flavour and consistency. You have to try it!
