8 No-Fail Pound Cake Recipes
Wednesday March 4th, is National Pound Cake Day. Pound cakes date back to the early 1700's and originally consisted of one pound each of butter, sugar, flour and eggs. This no-fail combination was easy for cooks to remember, hence the name. The generous ingredient amounts made a large pound cake but through the years the ingredient amounts have been scaled back to yield a smaller pound cake.
Pound cakes remain one of our most beloved and favorite desserts here in the South in every flavor. Celebrate this timeless classic with one of these 8 no-fail pound cake recipes.
