Recipe Notes

It’s very important to beat the egg whites, and then add them to the batter. It's what gives the pound cake its airy texture.

You can slice the cake, and freeze it! It lasts frozen for around three months.

This is a great base recipe. You can add fruits or spices to customize it to fit your taste. It's delicious with chocolate chips, raspberries, or with a little lemon zest.
