English term or phrase: pound cake
What's "pound cake" in Arabic? Al-Mawrid's كعك رطلي is not clear at all. Can we say كعك دسم according to longman's "a heavy cake made from flour, sugar, and butter"?

Not every term, this is the Arabic term for "pound cake." If you choose another term, no one will be able to tell what it is.
