This recipe is so simple and easy to follow and absolutely delicious! It also smells heavenly when baking in your oven. In the traditional sense, pound cake is a cake made with a 1:1:1:1 ratio. 1lb butter, 1lb sugar, 1lb eggs, and 1lb flour. There are many, many variations of it nowadays though. This recipe has heavy cream in it as well, which I think is a nice addition. Still rich, but makes the cake a little lighter and less dense.
