Let’s get one thing straight right out of the gate, the main most important reason to make cake is because it can double as a dessert and/or breakfast food. That’s definitely the only benefit of slaving away in the kitchen whipping up batter and baking and cooling the cake, aside from it’s delicious taste of course. Sometimes you’re in need of something sweet after stuffing your face with food for dinner, the answer is cake. Or sometimes you need a treat first thing in the morning, the answer is cake. You’re feeling peckish late at night before bed, cake. You’re getting sleepy at work, typing away on your computer during the middle of the day, cake. You’re stuck in traffic right smack in the middle of peak rush hour, CAKE! You had a bad day at work, cake, cake, cake and CAKE!
Anyhow, I’ve determined that pound cake is called pound cake because you get to eat a pound of cake at a time and it’s totally acceptable. No one will give you dirty looks for eating too much cake, and if they do, it’s only because they’re incredibly jealous of you and your superior life choices. My advice to you is to not give it a second thought and just continue living your life by eating pounds and pounds of cake right when you wake up or whenever you want because you’re living your life and no one should tell you how to live it.
This cake has quite a few steps (so say that I didn’t warn you, but I promise they’re all worth it and you won’t even notice them because in the end you’ll be eating slice after slice of the best pound cake you’ll ever eat. It’s layered with quite a few flavors so that each bite is different. You don’t want a cake to be exactly the same with each other, because then it becomes boring and monotonous. No one want’s that. So get creative and forget about all of your fears in the kitchen because you’re the boss. Y0u got this, I believe in you.
