Moist Orange or Lemon Pound / Loaf Cake

217

After spending many years searching for a good 'pound' cake that wasn't dry, or flavourless, I decided to experiment and make my own recipe up with different flavour combinations to see if I could really get a moist cake. Once you've tried this recipe, I am sure you will make it time and time again. So here's the recipe, and enjoy!

226g, 1 3/4 cups Plain / All purpose flour (sieved)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 Tablespoons regular sugar (you can reduce amount if you don't want it too sweet)

1. Heat oven to 160C, Gas 3, 300F. Grease and line your baking tin. See here for how to line. ** Please note, if using a Bundt tin, be sure to grease it very well as it can be hard to get the cake out of...
