Chamomile Pound Cake

Pound cakes are among the purest flavored cakes; in this version, chamomile adds a subtle twist.

Note: I always find that cakes baked in loaf pans tend to overcook on the sides. To lessen this effect and promote more even baking, insulate your pan by wrapping it in several layers of heavy-duty foil, or, if you have an extra loaf pan, use it as an extra layer.
