Is WASC considered a pound cake ?
After I posted, I googled "pound cake definition" and came up with why you probably think they are the same.
This is what I got from most online dictionaries:
A rich, finely textured yellow cake containing eggs, flour, butter, and sugar.
However, originally pound cake was made with pound of eggs, a pound of butter, a pound of sugar and a pound of flour & then flavor of choice. No baking soda, no baking powder, no milk. From what I understand you beat the batter well after each egg addition to get the leavening effect.
oh okay thank u. .... I just had that thought becuz of how dense and thick like pound cake it is. ..is there a book out there that u know of that differentiates the types of cakes...cause I would also like to know what constitutes a sponge cake.
And be little more educated on something that I love (cake)
You could try to google different cake types and see what you get.

Buy Rose Levy Beranbaum's The Cake Bible and Shirley Corriher's Bakewise Both are EXCELLENT books and you will learn a TON of information about cakes, not to mention you will also get a ton of awesome recipes.
