How to make it

  • For a 11 cup bundt pan.
  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Butter and flour the pan.
  • Crack and weigh eggs (about 6).
  • Weigh other ingredients, each equal to the weight of the eggs
  • Cream butter and sugar together.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time (This seems to get more air into the batter and it rises better).
  • Mix in the flour until smooth.
  • Spoon batter into pan.
  • Bake 55-65 mins.
  • If you want to make a smaller cake, take your baking form, put it on a kitchen scale, tare it to zero and fill it 3/4 full with water. This will give you the weight that the pan can hold with enough room for rising. Divide this weight by 4 and this is the weight of each ingredient you need to add.

    Made it for my family, and it is wonderful! And I'm usually adept at screwing up recipies. I ended up with 7 eggs. I love your simple math!

    That's an interesting way of working out proportions. I will keep this in mind for when I need a cake of a particular size. What a convenient way doing things.

    Oooh do I know what a pound cake is!! I am kind of spoiled to a sour cream version.

    Yes I believe you are right with the eggs. Course you could cheat just a pinch and add a little soda and baking powder.

    I will be trying this. Just straight up plain.
