I used to make one out of a Duncan Hines Supreme Cake Mix. It was really good. May have the recipe around here someplace, I'll post it if i can find it.

A family favorite in our house. Orange cornmeal pound cake. Or for something a little different Orange Poppyseed Cake.

I used James Beard's recipe, and put in orange zest and gran marnier instead of vanilla.

There's not leavening agent in this recipe. Is that correct?

Correct. There is no leavening agent in pound cakes. Pound cake is a drier heavier cake. See my edit for suggestion.

I see that both the recipes in merstar's post show recipes with leaveners. I have also seen recipes like yours, with no leaveners. I guess it can work both ways.

Origional Pound Cakes did not contain any leaveners. Pound Flour, Pound Butter, Pound Sugar etc..............
Newer versions do contain leaveners, to lighten it up. It is just a matter of choice I guess.
