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, 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. The secret to making good pound cakes is to follow some important yet simple steps during the preparation. Always separate the eggs and only beat the yolks first. After the batter is mixed with the remaining ingredients, beat the egg whites till frothy and carefully fold into the mixture right before you transfer it into the oven. This will result in a light cake with a quintessential crumbly texture of a typical pound cake. Pound cakes also yield an incredible flavor when you add a good quality pure vanilla organic extract. Vanilla, just like salt acts as a flavor enhancer.
