Pound Cake refers to the type of cake traditionally made with a pound of each of four ingredients: Flour, Butter, Eggs, and Sugar - Wikipedia!
I've always wondered about Pound Cake. What is the big hype about it. Is it really that amazing? So, I looked it up and when I saw Wiki's definition I realized that it is basically the same as Madeira Cake, or rather say almost the same.
Let's see and get baking! I used Martha Stewart"s Recipe, only difference. I add baking powder and cheese cake flavor. Why, because I love to experiment!
You will note that I do not say how long it should bake. It is because we all have different ovens. And even brand new ovens behave differently. My oven is really a fabulous oven, but even I still use an oven thermometer to make sure the temperature is right. I also set a timer to check on the cake at intervals of 20 minutes, then 5 minutes thereafter. Reason for that is because you might separate your mix into two pans which means it will get baked quicker.
I always say: "If you smell the cake, it is probably almost done" That is the time when you can open the oven and test if it is baked. Once done, put on cooling racks to complete completely.
The verdict: It is definitely not a cake that you will use for Birthday Parties. Perfect for Tea-time. I honestly think it will be great with a dash of whipped cream and fruit. No wonder it is baked in a bread pan or ring pan!
