The real trick with this cake is to start it out in a cold oven and it will turn out perfectly every time. A very easy and satisfying butter cake.
This is the most delicious pound cake I've ever made, and I've tried a few recipes! I used Kremelta instead of copha and beat butter and sugar the full 10 mins. I baked it in a bunt tin and it only needed 1hr in my oven. Would pay to check it at an hour rather than wait the full 1hr 20mins. I also cooled it on a plate wrapped in clingfilm to keep the cake moist. Devine! - 20 Feb 2012
