This week's Sweet Melissa Sundays (SMS) recipe was chosen by Michele of Veggie Num Nums: Perfect Pound Cake. One of the few recipes I've been less than impressed with in baking along with Tuesdays with Dorie has been the Perfection Pound Cake. It was a bit dry and I would chock it up to baker error but several others made the same observation as well. So I was curious to see how this pound cake compared.
I must say that this recipe is much better. Now I'm not sure if that's because it truly is, or because I got lucky. You see, in my rush to get this done today, I only added 1-1/4 cups of cake flour instead of the 1-3/4 cups that you're supposed to add... oops! (I didn't even notice this until I peeked into the oven and it seemed a bit small - I then double checked the recipe and realized my error!) So while I found this pound cake to be nice and moist, I am not sure if that is because it's really a moist pound cake, or because I left out 1/2 cup of flour! I guess you'll have to visit the SMS Blogroll to see if everyone else found this pound cake just as moist as I did :)
Thanks Michele, for choosing this recipe. I may have found my go-to pound cake recipe (just have to make it again as directed to see if it's still just as great).
