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".

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

This is a perfectly plain poundcake: http://delightfulrepast.blogspot.com/2010/06/classic-pound-cake-half-pound-actually.html

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!

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

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.

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