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.

Ingredients

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.

Step 2

Combine flour, baking powder, salt and mace in medium bowl. Beat sugar, butter and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in flour mixture alternately with evaporated milk. Pour into prepared loaf pan; sprinkle with nuts.

Step 3

Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes; remove to wire rack to cool completely.
