This one uses oil and yogurt in place of butter, but it's quite delicious and very moist.

Thanks for the suggestions! I particularly like the idea of swapping some butter for oil to ensure that moistness I so love. BUt I'm really looking for a plain pound cake. Has anyone, by any chance, tried Ina Garten' plain pound cake recipe? I made it quite a while ago and recall not having great results, but the memory is hazy. I usually find her recipes spot on, so I'm considering making it again.

Do you have the original Silver Palate cookbook? The Bishop's Cake is a very classic pound cake -- and very good.

James Beard's "Old Time Pound Cake" is a classic.

Also, Big Mama's Whipping Cream Pound Cake from Molly O'Neill's "One Big Table" http://bit.ly/e3ZGN0 is an excellent, plain pound cake.

Have not tried Ina's. In current issue of Fine Cooking, Carol Walter's Classic Poundcake is featured. On my list!

I agree with drbabs. I have made this pound cake a number of times and everyone asks for the recipe.

Ina's lemon poundcake is good, but I like the yogurt maple pound cake much better.

Here is Ina's recipe. She had a recent show where she demonstrated it. I think it was called "Beach Picnic".
