Howdy All,
The pound cake recipe I'm looking for must be the world's best kept secret. Those that know how to make it WILL NOT part with the recipe-I promise you-LOL! This cake is dense, moist, buttery and has a crusty (not crunchy) exterior. The only people that I know that know how to bake it either "don't measure the ingredients" or again will not part with them. Come on people, help me out! icon_lol.gif

Happy baking,

P.S. Pound Cake Snobs-have mercy on me! icon_cry.gif

Don't know if this is it, but it's my favorite pound cake in the entire world!

Cream Cheese Poundcake

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3 cups sugar
6 large eggs
1 1/2 t. vanilla
3 cups flour
1/8 t. salt

Beat butter and cream cheese for 2 minutes, until mixture is creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating 5-7 minutes until very light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until yellow disappears. Add vanilla, mixing well. Combine flour and salt, gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed until blended after each addition. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10 inch tube pan. Fill a 2 cup, ovenproof measuring cup with water and place in oven next to tube pan.

Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely.

I don't have a recipe for you. But, you could do a google image search for "pound cake recipe". Then you can search out a crusty pound cake.

I think you are looking for a "cold oven pound cake" most pound cakes will bake up crusty if they are started in a cold oven. Hope that helps!

My pound cake sounds like JodieF's recipe. My observation is that if it has a big sugar ratio to the flour and recipe (3cups sugar and 3 cups flour), it should develop a good sugar crust on the top for you. I love the flavor of the cream cheese pound cakes!
