Butter Pound Cake

My updated version of the traditional "pound of butter, pound of sugar, pound of eggs, pound of flour" recipe produces a pound cake that's soft and moist, yet still has the classic's buttery flavor and springy texture. The recipe is easily altered for the season. The three variations below are perfect for winter. In summer, I like to add fresh blueberries to the batter, and in fall, I stir in chopped cranberries.
