Everything you need to make the most important meal of the day delicious.

Pound cakes are one the purest cakes, relying solely on the eggs, sugar, and butter for flavor. While a plain Jane version is my favorite, I do make variations with subtle additions that won't upstage the base, such as a Almond-Chocolate Marble.

In this recipe, I've added a strongly brewed dose of soothing chamomile tea and incorporated it into the batter. The gently herbal tone is delicate and is later accentuated by a chamomile-honey glaze. The effect is subtle, as a hot cup right before bed would be.
