DELICIOUS QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What is a pound cake?
A pound cake refers to a type of cake originally made with one pound each of flour, sugar, butter and eggs. Often a little vanilla or lemon was added for flavor. Over the years, bakers have altered the recipe to include leavenings such as baking powder or baking soda, and to replace the butter with oil.
At The Stonehouse Bakery, we went back to the traditional recipe of flour, sugar, butter and eggs, adjusting the proportions for our high altitude. The result is a moist, dense, fine-textured cake that can be eaten plain or used to create trifles and other decadent desserts!
What are the sizes of your Stonehouse Bakery pound cakes?
We bake our pound cakes in two sizes. The loaf and medium Bundt weigh approximately two pounds. The large Bundt weighs about four pounds.

The loaf and medium Bundt offer approximately 8–10 servings. The large Bundt serves 16-20.
