While pound cake is named after the original weight of its ingredients—a pound each of flour, butter, sugar, and eggs—most modern recipes do not follow these measurements. Traditionally baked in a loaf pan, this tender, fine-textured cake has many flavor variations, including lemon, orange, and coconut. This delectable version is scented with mace and topped with chopped nuts. For a special touch, dust the top with powdered sugar just before serving.
