Many families have their go-to recipes for pound cake. Some call for almond extract or lemon juice--or rum--to provide extra flavor. Others say to top the cake with a glaze or powdered sugar. Still others (like our family's recipe) keep it simple, with no topping and just a hint of vanilla.
No matter the extras, all pound cake recipes share four key ingredients: butter, eggs, flour, and sugar.
