I am a bad passenger, airlines don’t like me.
I am a magazine hog who snatches every in-flight magazine, pile them up in my seat, never return them back to the rack, and then I rip off interesting pages on these magazines. (Oops, did I just confess my dirty secrets?!)
Yes, I am one of those passengers that flight attendants and fellow passengers sneer at, especially when they hear the suspicious noise as I tear off pages. I really can’t help it. I am addicted to magazines; I can’t sleep on planes; and I absolutely CANNOT resist mouthwatering food and recipes on magazines. They whisper “tear me tear me” in my ears, I swear.
This pound cake is the result of the above shameful acts. It’s a classic pound cake recipe on Better Homes and Garden, May 2009 issue. The pound cake photos look velvety, deliciously dense, moist, and just perfect. I had to tear the pages off and try the pound cake recipe at home.
My pound cake turned out quite good except one flaw–I used coarse organic cane sugar and didn’t cream the butter and sugar long enough to break the sugar. It was a good pound cake nonetheless.
Here is my adapted pound cake recipe. Happy baking!
