On my second attempt to make a cake from scratch, I went looking for a pound cake recipe. Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough eggs for most of them (a smart man would have tried something else at this point) but I found this one and thought I’d give it a try.
The batter for the exact recipe was pretty bland, it didn’t taste like a pound cake or much of anything for that matter. I added a little extra brown sugar and some cinammon which gave the batter a much better flavor.
The cake baked up nicely, but there is no way I would call it a pound cake. It was not nearly dense enough for one thing. It tasted a lot more like a coffee cake, and if I make it again, I would add a crumbled mixture of flour, butter, brown sugar, and cinammon.
