I think it's called pound cake because that's how much weight you gain when you eat it.

Truth in advertising is a thing of the distant past? [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

"Pound cakes were originally called pound cakes because
their recipes called for a pound of lard, a pound of sugar, etc. "
- per recipeland.com

A pound of lard and sugar... seems a little excessive! lol But...probably sounds worse than it really is. I guess I'm just use to cups for measurement. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Ja'aj is correct; my mom used to say the same thing, a pound of this, a pound of that...

Actually, for a full size cake, it's about right, if you think about it, since two cups of flour or sugar would be roughly equivalent to a pound, and if you consider that a pound of butter has four sticks, each of which is half a cup, so a pound of butter is exactly 2 cups.

Tater, I kind of thought that's how it would be. Just when you say "a pound", it sounds like a lot! lol

Yeah, it does sound like a lot, especially if you consider that a pound of butter has 3200 calories!

"Why does my pound cake weigh ten ounces?"
dancing bunny Hmm, I have no clue, but I'll give it some thought.

Hmmm.. I had already planned on turkey and ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, peas and carrots, stuffing, pumpkin pies, cheesecake, jello with fruit and coolwhip, rolls, cranberry sauce.... not sure, but that might be it. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
