P8210527Pound cake, that is.  Off-and-on rain plus thick clouds equals a high temperature of just 74 degrees; perfect weather for late summer baking.  A new, stoneware tea loaf pan arrived yesterday; the long, narrow shape promised to shave baking time off of pound cakes, quick breads, and loaves. 

It worked pretty well–a standard 1/2 cup of butter pound cake took 55 minutes to bake, rather than recipe’s recommended 75 minutes.
