When it comes to baking, I like really simple recipes that are almost fail-proof, yet deliver satisfactory results. Recipes that call for only a few basic baking ingredients, precisely, butter, flour, eggs, and sugar, that create magic when blended together and baked. One example is pound cake.
I spotted this perfect pound cake recipe a while ago on Kokken. Seriously, I have never seen such a perfect looking pound cake on the internet; I immediately bookmarked the recipe, which is from “The Cake Book” by Tish Boyle. I could always use a slice (or two or three) of pound cake. I never tire of rich and buttery cake.
Now that I have tried this perfect pound cake recipe, I have to say that even though the pound cake is really good, I still think that this butter cake recipe I learned from Food-4Tots is slightly better. The two recipes are very similar, but the butter cake recipe is richer with more butter, which I love. Plus, I actually didn’t fancy the addition of grated orange and lemon zest in this pound cake recipe.
In any case, if you love a good pound cake, this recipe is definitely a keeper.
