Pound Cake Recipe


I was thinking of baking this pound cake for many days but I always ended up baking chocolate cake as I am so chocolate addict. Me and my kids love everything made with chocolate, whether it’s ice cream, milkshake or any dessert but I wanted to try something different this time.

With the kid’s approval, I finally baked this Pound cake yesterday and both me and my kids fell in love with it with the first bite. And quite surprisingly my husband was also not ashamed to throw some words of appraisal after eating the cake.

It is so tasty and soft that it just melts in your mouth. The recipe is so easy that even a kid can bake it in adult supervision. So, guys, I want you to try it and share your comments here. Don’t miss this mouth melting treat.

        Is it once you mix the liquid ingredients and see that there are not lumps and that everything is properly mixed, you pour in your baking pan?

        • Neel December 15, 2017, 3:54 pm

          you also have to mix dry ingredients

  • Tee September 2, 2017, 2:06 am

    Hello Neel. Please I would like to find out why its called pound cake. Thanks.

  • zippy September 2, 2017, 8:54 am

    looks yummy. gonna try it

  • Joni Mitchell September 2, 2017, 11:22 pm

    Tee it is called a pound cake because when this recipe was developed many many years ago every ingredient that went into this cake was a pound…1 pound of butter, 1 pound of eggs, 1 pound of sugar…etc. most pound cake recipes have been pared down because people usually don’t eat that size cake any more! (although I probably could πŸ™‚ )

    • Neel September 3, 2017, 5:52 am

      Wow….thanks for sharing this information

    If I want to use oil instead of butter then what will be the amount of oil? 16tbsp?

    • Tarvin September 6, 2017, 5:01 pm


    • Neel September 7, 2017, 9:28 am

      Better to use butter

    Am glad to be so I can learn more, thank u dear for sharing.

  • Annetta December 15, 2017, 4:28 am

    The recipe calls for 3/4 c. sugar ground. Is this granulated sugar or powdered sugar? Would love to try this. Was writing it down when I noticed the sugar and just want it clarified.

    • Neel December 15, 2017, 5:09 am

      Make powder of sugar in blender

  • Rita December 15, 2017, 9:13 pm

    I’ll certainly try this. Thank u

  • Lesley Heales December 17, 2017, 12:03 am

    It says preheat oven to 350, but then bake at 180..is this correct? Do we just turn the oven down before adding cake?

    • Neel December 17, 2017, 11:32 am

      Yes…350 is very high temperature and its celcius. Always bake cake at 180 degrees

      • Lesley Heales December 17, 2017, 12:35 pm

        Ok thanks that explains it, I am in Canada, the ovens are n farenheit, so would be 350 for me

  • anyi December 20, 2017, 7:37 pm

    Nice one!!!

  • Julieann January 10, 2018, 1:54 am

    The temp confuses me. There’s two different temps listed. Which one is it? Are these in Fahrenheit?

    • Neel January 10, 2018, 2:07 am

      Its 180 celsius or 375 forenhite

  • Nagina January 16, 2018, 10:24 am

    Hi Neel

    Im new to cooking and baking so gonna ask you a silly question 😌 In recipe its13 tbs of butter. The butter when refrigerated is bit hard so you mean we need to melt it before measuring with πŸ₯„

    • Neel January 16, 2018, 10:57 am

      Put butter out of fridge for few hours and measure it at room.temprature

  • Ajidagba January 16, 2018, 10:53 am

    Plz can u say d the sugar measurement in gram

  • Carolyn Horn January 16, 2018, 1:15 pm

    Sounds delicious! I’m in the U.S., not sure of the temperature. I cook in Fahrenheit, so what temperature do I preheat, then what temperature do I turn oven down to cook? Thank you

  • Monica C. January 16, 2018, 4:34 pm

    I’m going to try this today! It looks delicious. πŸ˜‹
