Buttermilk Pound Cake
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 70 min. + cooling
I decided to venture in to pound cake territory not too long ago. I tried one other recipe before this one and was not impressed. This cake is fantastic! I am adding this in to my regular baking regime. It is moist, the sponge of the cake is not crumbly but not too dense. This cake is perfect alone or as a base for a shortcake or Trifle.
This is THE BEST Pound Cake I have ever made and had. Hands down!!! My wife doesn't like sweets and as she was gobbling one of the last few slices looked at me and stated: "you ARE making another one today, right?" Hahaha. No better endorsement than that!!! Thank you for such a delicious recipe!!!
I wanted to bake something to use up buttermilk I had on hand and chose this recipe. It looked interesting so I thought Why not? OMG! It was/is absolutely delicious! It was moist and buttery and it's made it into my file of favorites. I added some macerated strawberries (my husbands suggestion and it was a good one at that). Try this cake. I really think you'd really like it.
Chose this simple recipe to test drive my new 10 cup Nordic Ware Blossom Bundt Cake Pan. Giving it 4-stars as there's too much batter for a 10 cup bundt pan. Followed the recipe exactly with no substitutions or alterations and, besides overflowing the pan during baking, it was perfect! The dense cake released from the intricate patterned pan perfectly. The taste was wonderfully simple. Sprinkling confectioner's sugar on top made it perfect for kids. Pairing with sliced strawberries soaked in Grand Marnier liquor made a sophisticated finish for adults. Next time will add a chocolate ganache glaze, and reserve extra batter for side cupcakes for the kids.
Oh my Goooooodness, this is the best pound cake. I added rum and it was fabolous.
Will this turn out okay without a flute pan ??
Turned out perfect!
With Covid19 quarantine, I have been baking more. This sounded good and it is. I will make it again but I may try almond extract for the vanilla but would not change another thing.
This is a delicious recipe! I only had one problem and I'm thinking that I've done something wrong. The cake would not easily release from the pan. When it did, I lost some of the outer layer. DOd anyone else have same problem. The cake still Tastes delicious. Would appreciate any input.
Sharron--- Look, you can't go on tweaking a recipe that isn't yours. You can use your own if there aren't enough eggs to your liking. Now, I'd like to point out that there are a lot of child bakers who are looking for recipes during quarantine because of COVID19. Allow them the chance to try the recipe for themselves. On a happier note, this is the best pound cake my daughter has ever made! I agree with Jay, it was ABSOLUTELY SCRUMPTIOUS!!! Thank you for sharing this recipie!
