Pound Cake Trivia

Posted on July 9, 2014 at 4:40 PM

POUND CAKE

 

'Pound Cake' is so named because the original recipe consisted of one pound each of butter, sugar, flour and eggs. It originated sometime in the first half of the 18th century.

 

Here is a recipe from the 'Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy' by Hanna Glasse (1747).

 

SOME CURIOSITIES IN HER RECIPE

Note the option of a pound of currants.

Note all the 'beating' - and all done with the hand - in particular the 1 HOUR time. That's one heck of a workout!

 

To Make a Pound Cake

Take a pound of butter, beat it in an earthen pan with your hand one way, till it is like a fine thick cream: then have ready twelve eggs, but half the whites; beat them well, and beat them up with the butter, a pound of flour beat in it, a pound of sugar, and a few carraways. Beat it all well together for an hour with your hand, or a great wooden spoon, butter a pan and put it in, and then bake it an hour in a quick oven. For a change you may put in a pound of currants, clean washed and picked.

Carrie Underwood is my favourite US contry singer. She is young, beautiful and charming woman in her 30s. Her strong voice takes me away from all troubles of this planet and I can enjoy my life and listen songs created by her mind. Now she is on a Cry Pretty 360 Tour started in May of 2019. The concerts scheduled for this year, up to the 31st of October. Tickets are available for all men and women with different income.
