Pound cake traditionally made with a pound of each of four ingredients: flour, sugar, butter and eggs. Pound cakes are generally baked in either a loaf pan or a Bundt mold, and served with powdered sugar, lightly glazed, or with a coat of icing. Other variants include adding chocolate or lemon juice for flavour.
