  • 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. I have halved cake recipes before without issue. The most complicated thing to worry about is halving an odd number of eggs, but this question addresses that.
