What is a Pound Cake?

Traditionally, a pound cake is made from butter, sugar, flour, and eggs. It got its name as it used to be made with a pound of each ingredient.

Typically, pound cakes are baked in a bundt pan or loaf pan. They are often topped with powdered sugar, a glaze, or frosting.

Many believe that pound cakes originated in northern Europe in the 1700s. Over time, there have been several variations made to this traditional cake. There are many different flavor combinations of pound cakes found today.
