Traditionally, Pound cakes were called so because of adding a pound of butter, sugar and flour each in a typical pound cake recipe. Today, however, pound cakes recipes have different variations and proportions. Pound cake recipes over the years have changed so much, and there is no right or wrong method for making a pound cake. The secret to baking good pound cakes is to follow some important and simple steps during the preparation. Since this recipe uses a creaming method of combining sugar and butter, always make sure to let the sugar dissolve completely in the butter. You can do so by beating the mixture on a high-speed setting until you get a light and fluffy texture. This step is essential for baking a softer cake. Additionally, you can also 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 in the end. Pound cakes also yield a delicious flavor when you add a high-quality pure vanilla organic extract.
