Pound Cake  
A yellow cake with a dense texture and rich flavor that is traditionally made with one pound each of flour, butter, sugar, and eggs. Throughout the years many variations of pound cake recipes have been developed, such as the addition of leavening (baking powder or baking soda) and numerous flavorings, such as coconut, nuts, raisins and dried fruit. Pound cakes are often considered to be classified as quick breads or tea cakes.
