Back in those days, Pound cakes traditionally called for a pound of butter, sugar and flour each and that's why it is called as 'Pound cake.' Today, however, pound cakes have many variations and proportions to the recipe. Pound cake recipes over the years have changed so much, and there is no right or wrong recipe for making a pound cake. To make a perfect pound cake always separate the eggs and only fold in the yolks first. Beat the egg whites till frothy and slowly fold into the batter in the end just before you put the batter into the oven. Doing so will result in a delicious cake just the way you want it. Baking cakes are not all that complicated especially if you have the best cake recipes on hand. Alternately, you can add vanilla bean paste to the batter to make it more flavorsome.
