Turn cake out of pan onto wire rack. Noella Striped Crop Top. Pound cake got its name from days of old when ingredients were measured in colonial kitchens on scales.
Other ovens were built into a brick wall and fires were lit directly in the oven itself. When the wood fire had heated the bricks inside the oven, the burnt pieces of wood and ashes were raked out of the oven and food placed inside it to bake.
Colonial day pound cakes must have been eaten plain, but some were soaked in rum, while others had sauces dripped over them such as "burnt sugar" caramel or honey or even different types of fruit preserves.
Occasionally they would probably contain dried fruit such as raisins or dried rind of lemon or oranges. Some household gardens grew citron and candied them for cakes. Sometimes blossoms of such flowers as roses and violets were candied and sugared in the summer and saved for cake decorations.
An early American custom was to "pound" young married couples or new preachers. In this custom, people of the neighborhood showed up in a surprise visit by bringing presents by the pound. The presents were just about always food of some sort. It was also supposed to be good luck to "pound" a preacher. Modern day pound cakes are a far cry from their colonial ancestors. No longer do we measure ingredients by the pound, but by cups and spoonfuls.
Most pound cake "connoisseurs" like a pound cake to be very heavy and made with enough real butter to squeeze grease out of each slice. Many believe a truly good pound cake should be "sad. One old timer I knew said pound cake should be "sad" enough to bring just one tear to each eye! Have you ever tried a slice of sharp cheddar cheese on top of a slice of pound cake? The flavors are delicious together. Many old fashioned cooks would bring out a jar of canned peaches and whipped cream to top a slice of pound cake.
