If you didn’t know, a pound cake recipe gets its name because the cakes are traditionally made with a pound each of butter, flour, sugar, and eggs. This isn’t a true pound cake because it doesn’t use those full pound ratios, it’s a bit lighter on the weight side. You’ll love this homemade cake recipe.

Pound cake is an old-fashioned, gently sweet cake that few are still making today. How sad. It is easy to make and absolutely delicious!  These recipes are reminiscent of grandma and her kitchen table in the BEST. possible way. In fact, this recipe is best served with a tablecloth and chipped dishes. And tea, of course.
