Question about Pound Cake

Hello,

I would like to make the type of Pound Cake that they have in Diners.
It is dense & heavy. How would I make this? Could it be made using a
box cake mix?

Thank you,
George

It would have to be a boxed pound cake mix...

Pound cake is called that because the basis of the recipe is a pound each of flour, eggs, butter and sugar with some flavorings such as rose water, lemon etc. A regular cake mix won't do it.

I must admit a pound cake boxed mix does sound like you'd get what you want but I do have a recipe for a tried and true Sara-Lee-ish type pound cake [I've made it a dozen times myself so I know how it turns out]. This may be what you are looking for. Gotta bring it up then I'll Private message you with it........................Off top of my head, it uses a Duncan Hines white cake mix as the starter...

Okay, got it, check your private message it's there.
