Pound cakes are traditionally made with a pound of flour, butter, eggs, and sugar - though any ratio of 1:1:1:1 work excellently!  These pound cake recipes deviate from the classic, but they're all jazzed up with delicious extras (and in most cases, seriously lightened up on the butter too and sugar too). Any one of these fabulous pound cakes will work as the go-to dessert for any occasion. Find an excuse to bake one today!
