    • Hi Brilliantviewpoint! Your welcome and thank you so much for your compliment! Pound cake always has this tender, moist texture than the regular cakes. Especially if you use fruits in it. And to be honest, we don’t have a recipe for a dryer version of a pound cake. But we would love to try this version as well hihi. So we are going to do some research, and we will let you know if we hav a dry pound cake recipe! Btw, thanks for stopping by our blog. Xoxo

      • Hi Cewinta — Nice to hear from you. Oh, I like moist pound cake too and am looking forward to trying your recipe. I also like the pound cakes that are a little dryer, because my mother is from Italy and their cakes tend to be dryer. My mother was not much of a baker; otherwise, I could have shared a cake recipe with you. Thanks for sharing.
