Old-Fashioned Pound Cake
In the South, we love a good pound cake. This one is positively heavenly—sweet and rich but still, somehow, light as a cloud. Creaming the butter and sugar is the most important step when making a pound cake. Give it time to whip up light and fluffy, and scrape down the sides often when adding eggs. This pound cake is perfect served as-is, or you can dress it up with sweetened whipped cream and fresh berries.
