Celebrate National Pound Cake Day with a Slice of the South!

National Pound Cake Day

At Chez Moi Bakery, we're honoring National Pound Cake Day by paying homage to the storied tradition of Southern Pound Cake. A beloved staple in Southern cuisine, this classic dessert has roots stretching back to the early American colonies. Originally crafted with a simple formula of a pound each of flour, butter, eggs and sugar, it has evolved into a symbol of Southern hospitality and warmth.

The Southern twist on the classic pound cake brings a rich, buttery flavor and a dense yet delicate crumb, often enhanced with a glaze or zest of lemon for a subtle tang. Many cherished recipes are passed down through generations, incorporating these traditional elements with your own unique touch, promising a taste of history in every bite.

Join me to experience the legacy of Southern Pound Cake. Perfect with a cup of coffee or as the sweet end to a meal, it's more than just a cake; it's a slice of Southern heritage.

And, if we're talking about Southern pound cakes, I must mention my friend Nancy's cookbook Southern Cakes! It would be a lovely addition to your cookbook collection!
