Traditionally pound cakes were made with apound each of four ingredients: flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. This made quite a bit of pound cake so people probably cut the measurements, but having an equal parts recipe was most likely an easy way to remember and pass down the recipe during a time when most people could not read.

Dating back to the early 1700s, the pound cake is a British creation, though there are variations on the basic recipe from countries the world over. After rising agents were invented in the 1800s, recipes for pound cake changed in order to create lighter versions and to create unique flavors and tastes.

Enjoy your Happy Hour and remember, neither this martini nor the cake itself are called pound cake because they pile on the pounds.
