This is such a great recipe, just like I remembered when I would go to Bamberg, Germany for the many summer vacations. My Oma would bake this pound cake and serve it during breakfasts and tea time. It is moist in the middle with a crispy edge. Add mini chocolate chips for a different variety.
The large difference between this German pound cake recipe and the American variety is that this recipe is made with cornstarch. The cornstarch gives the cake such a different texture then the “normal” pound cakes.
The picture above does have 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips. It needed much more so that is why the recipe has 1 cup stated.
