Pound Cake

So in this new-to-us 1912 home, we have a lot more space (and an acre to play!), but no dishwasher or disposal. I've found this has made me far more conscious of what we're throwing away and it's also made me appreciate the one-bowl recipes. I'm not a big fan of clean up.

We still like our desserts around here, so I looked through CI's Family Baking Book's chapter on snack cakes. I've only made pound cake maybe once before, but this one really turned out well! We all liked it, very buttery but not greasy, fine crumb, moist. This is definitely one we'll be having again - the photo's all we had left this morning! I'd like some ginger or lemon variations, too...
