      This is the one and only true recipe for the original pound cake, but I do things just a bit differently. This recipe, as written, tends to yield an unpleasantly dry texture, so on a friend's advice, I now add a cup of whole milk to the batter alternately with the cake flour and bake at 375 for an hour or until it tests done. I also add all the juice and zest from two large lemons. This gives me a cake with a very light, but dense texture and incredibly rich flavor that just begs for a homemade blueberry compote or masserated strawberries and whipped cream. Awesome!

      I was looking for a good recipe for pound cake because my mom always made this type of cake when I was a kid. My hubby and I really enjoyed this recipe. The cake was like light and very flavorful.I followed directions as they were written.

      I was searching for an old recipe I used when my son was a little boy. We used to babysit my friend's chickens... boy, there were lots of eggs! I sent two loaves to him in Iraq and the other Marines offered money for more tastes! It must ship well! Thank you, so much!
