A pound cake is a dense, rich cake originally made with 1 pound each of flour, butter, and eggs. Today, pound cake might include a variety of other ingredients such as baking powder, sour cream, coconut, nuts, fruits, and flavorings.
To ensure your pound cake has the best texture, always measure ingredients precisely and mix batter properly. A critical step is beating the butter or shortening and sugar until light and fluffy.
This procedure takes about 5 minutes using an electric mixer and ingredients that have been at room temperature for 20 minutes. When adding eggs, flour, and liquid, mix until just blended. Over beating can cause your cake to be tough.
