So here's the close up.
I'm embarrassed to admit that this is the only piece left (it IS much bigger than it looks, it's at a "skinny" angle!). But hey, it was made Thursday afternoon, and Paul did take a chunk to work, and I gave a hunk to my Mom.....and, and, and.....
Oh hell, we're just a bunch of gluttons. And I wonder why I'm thirty pounds overweight.
So, now that you all have an up-in-your-face but-you-can't-eat-it photo, what say ye about the texture? I have noticed another thing though; the longer the cake sat, the better it got.
So, is it that I'm just used to the twinkie-like consistency of commercially sold pound cakes? Possibly. But honestly, I no longer care about trying to match that texture anymore. This cake is good enough as is......imperfect looking as it is!
Honey, there's nothing wrong with the way your pound cake looks! And even if there was(!), taste is what counts in my book. Having said that (and I sincerely mean it), my pound cake does look a little . . . I guess "smoother" is the only word I can think of. Wait! Dense? Is that it? Less holey? But then, maybe mine shouldn't even qualify as a pound cake 'cause it has only 2/3 cup of butter in it! Guess it just goes to prove that not all pound cakes are created equal!ReplyDelete
Homemade pound cakes always improve with age! I make a lemonade cake, with real lemon syrup (very tart) on top, best recipe I ever made...ReplyDelete
Looks heavenly to me! I love all types of homemade cake :)ReplyDelete
The texture of your pound cake looks good to me!! Good enough to eat! :)ReplyDelete
Looks delicious! I had to laugh about your comment about being "gluttons"ReplyDelete
I would not have guessed its a pound cake, but of course I only know what store bought pound cakes. That said it looks sooooo good. My mouth is watering for that last piece! (It's my inner fellow glutton.)ReplyDelete
Ok, now I'm hungry. lolReplyDelete
