You are EXACTLY right Penny when you use salted butter you do not use salt in a pound cake. Also any GOOD baker knows that you can bake a pound cake without soda or baking powder because of the amount eggs and sugar that you put in the cake which are both leavening agents. A pound cake of this sort needs no soda or baking powder and it will come out PERFECT!
