This made a beautiful, lush, fluffy, silky batter and that was the tip-off to what I was in for with the actual cake. It's compact and dense, just as it should be, but it's also moist, which isn't always a guarantee with other pound cake recipes. I used the batter for cupcakes, and frosted them with "Special Buttercream Frosting," also from this site. I made the batter exactly as written and I liked the addition of the lemon extract. This is such a good, basic, pound cake recipe, however, that it would be fun to experiment with any number of flavorings. Whether you use this batter for cupcakes, a loaf cake, Bundt, or for a carved, layer or wedding cake, this is a perfect recipe to choose!
