NATIONAL POUND CAKE DAY – March 4

National Pound Cake Day - March 4

NATIONAL POUND CAKE DAY

National Pound Cake Day is annually observed in the United States on March 4th.  Pound cake lovers, near and far, can celebrate with a piece (or two) of this delicious rich delight.

The traditional recipe for pound cake makes a cake much larger than most families can consume, as it calls for a pound each of flour, butter, eggs and sugar.  Hence the name Pound Cake.

In the United States, sour cream pound cake is a popular variation apart from the traditional pound cake recipe.  Other variations include adding vanilla or almond flavoring or dried fruits.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Turn on your ovens and bake up a traditional pound cake.
