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 incorporate the yolks first. After the batter is mixed with the remaining ingredients, beat the egg whites till frothy and carefully fold into the mixture just before you put it into the oven.

Never over beat the cream cheese as it may lose its firmness and turn runny which is not good for this recipe. As soon as the cream cheese reaches a smooth consistency, stop beating it any further to prevent it from turning soupy.
