we made a pound cake yesterday. it smelled amazing, it had great flavor and was fairly was easy to make, but it was really dry and heavy and hard like it's name. pound cake. i really don't blame the recipe though. i have a feeling our oven is a little off. i have had this feeling for awhile now. it seems like cook times take a lot longer than they should and sometimes the oven just shuts off, which of course can make baking quite a challenge. i'm anxious to try this cake again in the near future, in our new kitchen. it's equipped with top of the line, pro appliances. something that we are not accustomed to and i cannot wait to get in there and get to baking and cooking.
we made tish boyle's plainly perfect pound cake from the cake book.
