My Rich Crumbly Classic Pound Cake test run by Mabel Tauro! Here is her experience with making them!
Mabel’s Review in her own words: 🙂
Easy recipe. Awesome buttery crust. Not too fluffy, but not too dense either. Just perfect! Overall, a traditional pound cake with a side of nostalgia.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup cake flour (you can make cake flour by replacing 1 tbsp flour with 1 tbsp cornstarch)
2 sticks butter….melted (equals about 225gms)
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
4 room temperature eggs.
