    Maureenie's Note:

    I found this recipe on television over 20 years ago. It consistently is the best pound cake I have made. It has been adapted for modern times. A true pound cake is a pound each of butter, sugar, flour and eggs. This recipe is half.

      I made this last night to serve with strawberries and whipped cream and it was wonderful. Baked up perfectly after 70 min. Thanks for posting!

      This pound cake is GREAT! I usually half it and bake it in a springform, using it as a base for my cheesecake (like Junior's in Brooklyn, NY does). I made the full recipe last time and just cut the top off like a layer cake before adding my cheesecake to the springform pan. I'm sorry to say that I ate the entire layer I cut off. I couldn't stop, it was so moist and dense! I was thinking it would be perfect with Nutella spread on it...but it didn't last long enough for me to buy any. :)
