Pound Cake

-Submitted By Dahlia on 21st Dec 2015

(PoundCake)

Pound Cake is a traditional European cake made with a pound each of the flour, butter, eggs (about 8-10 eggs) and sugar. When I make the cake with this measurement I have to use a bundt pan. It usually makes many servings and is perfect when you make for a get together or for some occasions. 

The following recipe is a variation that I follow often when making for just our family. I have substituted half the amount of butter with yogurt to make it moister. The measurement given makes a small loaf and is perfect to be made any time. Do give it a try and enjoy.

  • All purpose flour (maida) - 1.5 cup
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Eggs - 3
  • Unsalted butter - 1/2 cup
  • Yogurt - 1/2 cup
  • Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking (or Cooking) Soda - a pinch
  • Salt - a pinch

Method

  1. Take the butter at room temperature and sugar in a mixing bowl. Cream it together using a whisk or a hand blender.
  2. Add the eggs one at a time and continue to whisk till the mixture turns light in color and fluffy.
  3. Mix in the yogurt and vanilla extract.
  4. Take the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda) in a sieve. Sieve it directly into the wet ingredients.
  5. Mix until everything is well combined. Do not over mix.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180 degree C (or 350 degree F). Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
  7. Pour the batter into the pan. Pat it lightly to make the top even and also remove any air bubbles.
  8. Bake it for 1 hour till a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Keep an eye after 45 minutes.
