I picked up a couple of these "old fashioned" pound cake pans (the kind with the removable bottom with the tube) at garage sales for $.50 each but I am sure you can still buy them. I prefer them to the bundt style (fluted) one piece cake pan.

I baked pound cake today. The batter is glossy, smooth, & a very pale yellow. I added 2 eggs and then 1cup of flour at a time instead of 1 egg then 1/2 c flour and it was fine. According to Alton Brown of Food Network, the correct internal temp for a pound cake is 210, which was the cake temp after 90 min.

I can't eat cake, but my family really loved the moistness and flavor of the pound cake. Will be adding this to my cake recipe list.

Thank you Marie for sharing this gem.
