How to raise the cake high for pound cakes

By user62128 We are baking pound cake, I am all happy about the taste, but i have two below problems, please help.

1) After we bake the cake and take it out, we observed after a week my top layer of the cake is moist and the bottom we see all the oil is settled down, making the cake look oily from bottom. The mid region of cake is very dry and not much moist. Is there anything I am missing to make my cake evenly moist and less dry?
2) How do I get high raise of the cake, we are good raise but as much as other cakes I have seen around, is there some magic which needs in there to make my cake raise high?

Any advise is highly appreciated. Thank You. …read more
