Pound cake refers to a type of cake traditionally made with a pound of each of four ingredients: flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. However, any cake made with a 1:1:1:1 ratio, by weight, of flour, butter, eggs, and sugar may also be called a pound cake, as it yields the same results. But over time we have become more calorie conscious so our ingredients have changed.
This can be a easy to prepare dish specially when baking with kids.
