Even at a time when cakes have become over-the-top, opulently decorated centerpieces and stars of their own television shows, a simple, unadorned pound cake can still reign supreme.

Buttery and lightly sweet, pound cake is the perfect backdrop to flavors from almond to dark chocolate, but just as delicious in basic vanilla. Pound cake is the Beyoncé of cakes: You can add harmonizing elements like extra flavorings or a shiny glaze, but it’s just as spectacular on its own.
