  • What is a half pound cake?

  • Why Half Pound Cake you might ask? Because this recipe uses 1/2 pound of each basic ingredient so that it only makes 1 loaf of poundcake (because I cannot eat an entire recipe of pound cake fast enough to warrant making it full-scale!)

  • Can I cut a cake recipe in half?

  • A particular recipe I would like to cut in half is Red Velvet Cake. (I would then just put all the batter into one cake pan instead of 2.) Show activity on this post.

  • What do you put on top of a pound cake?

  • Make this a lemon pound cake by adding 2 tablespoons of lemon zest and no more than 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice. Berries. Not only are berries excellent on top of pound cake you can add them to the batter. Use fresh or frozen and thawed! Sprinkles! Of course! Mashed banana to add extra moisture. Nuts.
