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

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

    • Neel September 2, 2017, 9:20 am

      Dont know that

    • Sukriti March 13, 2018, 5:01 pm

      • Cindy December 20, 2019, 11:06 pm

        It was made with a pound of butter a pound of sugar and a pound of flour originally.

  • 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 🙂 )

    • Neel September 3, 2017, 5:52 am

      Wow….thanks for sharing this information

    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

      • Tahira March 14, 2018, 5:34 pm

  • 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

    • Neel January 10, 2018, 2:07 am

  • Blue February 20, 2018, 7:44 am

    By volume each vanilla bean only contains around 3% – 5% vanillin however vanillin accounts for approximately 25% of the total flavour and fragrance experience of genuine vanilla extract. The remaining 75% are the organic compounds found in real vanilla beans, this is the major difference between extract and essence.

  • Lisa February 20, 2018, 8:33 am
