This one uses oil and yogurt in place of butter, but it's quite delicious and very moist.
If you go to my blog and check the index, you will find a classic moist and golden pound cake.
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!
This is a perfectly plain poundcake: http://delightfulrepast.blogspot.com/2010/06/classic-pound-cake-half-pound-actually.html
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".
Appreciate all the input!
