Pound Cake Demand
Who knew quite what level of demand there was for a good pound cake recipe.
Lots of Lurkers
I check my web site statistics every once in a while, and I know the traffic of readers to this site. Despite that, I never realized all it would take would be the offer of a good pound cake recipe to bring out hundreds of readers.
Suffice it to say, I've sent the recipe out far and wide. Even to some non-Americans who have never heard of a pound cake for those that didn't know.
Here's a link to Wikipedia's definitions for pound cake.
The recipe also calls for the use of a standard ring pan, or angel food cake pan.
I've done another seven rounds on the red lace tea cloth.
Due to weather last night and leaving my backpack at work, I wasn't able to get a picture of the lace-in-process, but I've only got about 18 more rounds to go before it's finished.
Believe it or not, I still can tell if I'll have enough cotton yarn to finish this piece.
Thanks to dragoncrafter for such a great history/description of cotton thread and yarn. One of these days, someone will come up with a standard, like the metric system, that will be used universally.
Mel writes, "My family has always used a recipe for cold oven pound cake (put the pan into a cold oven and then turn it on). It is far and away our favorite - so much so that it's the recipe I plan to use for my wedding cake."
Okay Mr. Tease...are you going to share this recipe? Oh god, now I'm begging for recipes...what is WRONG with me?
