This a really good down-home style, back to basics pound cake that my whole family enjoys! This recipe was handed down to me with the stipulation of placing the cake in a cold oven, and it turns out perfectly every time.

I would follow whatever a proven recipe indicates to use. Some do/don't have baking powder as an ingredient. This one does.

Grandmother's Pound Cake II

This recipe is over 100 years old and is the original kind of pound cake: it contains 1 pound each of butter, sugar, eggs and flour and contains no salt, baking powder or flavoring (but flavoring such as vanilla extract or almond extract can be added if desired!)

Thanks everyone! I was trying to see if my MIL left it out of the recipe she gave me. The recipe I used to use had baking powder.
