Pound Cake

Pound cake is one of  life’s simple pleasures. I have been baking it for some time now and have been quite happy with the way it comes out but when I came across this recipe which used whipping cream, I was curious – it seemed  to promise a taste reminiscent of the old English pound cakes I had eaten in India – and  decided to give it a try. The result was a fabulous cake with a moist, dense texture and a very subtle vanilla flavor. The beauty of this cake is in its simplicity; it doesn’t require any frosting/icing.  It’ s really the least ostentatious of all cakes and there’s a reason why. It can hold its own with its wonderful taste and flavor.

The recipe is thanks to allrecipes.com. (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Whipping-Cream-Pound-Cake-2/Detail.aspx) The only change I made was that I added 1/8 tea spoon of salt. Make sure you remove the cake from the oven as soon as bake time is over, otherwise you might get a crumbly cake.
