…the Pound Cake reigns from the 18th century and hails from Northern Europe
So, if you’re wondering like I am, where did the term Pound Cake come from? According to Wikipedia, the Pound Cake reigns from the 18th century and hails from Northern Europe.

Interestingly enough, today’s recipe uses a much lower quantity of ingredients but can be made by adjusting the ingredients as in the 1700’s.
