A Little Pound Cake History
Did you know how the Pound Cake got its name? It’s comes from a Northern European recipe that measured its ingredients in equal parts by weight. The recipe called for one pound of butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. We still make our cakes the traditional way with these four basic ingredients but have trimmed the original recipe down a bit. We honor our Aunt Ola’s recipe by making sure we bake our wonderfully rich and moist pound cakes just the way she would want them.
There are numerous variations to the traditional pound cake recipe. Adding distinctive flavorings such as lemon or almond extract or dried fruits or nuts can enhance the taste of this cake. Pound cakes are typically baked in Bundt or loaf cake pans and can be served topped with glaze, powdered sugar, or icing.
We took those variations to a new level to bring you the flavors that we have now:
- Ola’s Famous Butter Pound Cake
- Ola’s Famous Butter Rum Pound Cake
- Delectable! Chocolate Pound Cake
- Aunt Ola’s Lemon Pound Cake
- Red Velvet Pound Cake
Creating the company and baking these delicious cakes have brought back many happy memories of Aunt Ola and we are so happy that we can share these pound cakes with you and your family.
