This is a winner in our house. Orange cornmeal pound cake. And this blueberry pound cake rocks too. Not precisely a pound cake but a winner, lemon poppyseed cake. And this one is a big winner Bourbon Pecan Pound cake.

I hate to ask a silly question but what is a pound cake (meaning what makes it different to a normal cake)?

Hi Turando, its a heavier denser cake usually. The name comes from the "olden days" when you used a pound of butter, a pound of eggs etc etc to make the cake. They fed a lot of people in those days. LOL.

You can get a taller cake if you start a regular pound cake in a cold oven. EG, not preheating the oven. Not sure if other ingredients hinder that process...

Also, pound cakes are seldom frosted, at least not conventionally. Like ChefJune, I like the cake better than the frosting, so I prefer pound cakes or bundt cakes that might be lightly glazed, but not topped with gooey frosting.

I started to search for an old recipe that use to be on the swans down cake flour box. It was a pound cake made with whipping cream and was very light and moist. My mom and grandma use to make it.

I found it on this ladies' blog. She even has a picture.
