Lemon Pound Cake

Today’s recipe is for an easy lemon pound cake using a pouch of Pillsbury Neon Yellow Funfetti cake mix. The original flavor of the mix is vanilla, but adding some lemon, lemon oil, butter, lemon instant pudding and cream cheese gave it a great lemon flavor and a soft, dense, pound cake texture that improves […]

Chocolate Pound Cake

Today’s cake was an excuse to use some of the cocoa powder I bought last week at Costco. Next time you’re warehouse shopping, check the baking aisle because you may get lucky and find the 24 oz cans of Rodelle unsweetened cocoa powder for about $7.00. That’s a good price for just about any cocoa […]

The picture is what lured me into trying this recipe. Not my picture. My photo looks like this. It was this photo of a cake with such a smooth, even, brown looking crust that got me. It appears to be as smooth as a Sara Lee crust, and what happened to the edges? I guess […]

Have you ever divided a tube pan sized pound cake recipe between two loaf pans, and then been disappointed to find your two loaf cakes had very flat tops? This has happened to me many times, including when I made the half size, loaf shaped version of Elvis Presley’s Favorite Pound Cake. The texture is […]

Lemon Pound Cake

This week I stopped at Starbucks and bought a piece of their famous lemon pound cake. The texture was dense, tight crumbed and kind of heavy (a slice weighed 1/4 pound!), but what I liked best was the strong lemon flavor. I think they use lemon oil, so I wanted to see if I could […]

Not that you need an excuse, but it’s National Pound Cake Day so bake a pound cake! That is, if you like pound cake. It’s actually not my favorite type of cake, but it’s a good complement to the berries that have been on sale lately.  That, plus I’ve been searching for top pound cakes […]

perfect cream cheese pound cake

A few weeks ago I stopped by a local thrift store to look around. There were the usual old clothes, used jewelry and old appliances from the ’70s, but the real find was in the book section. Hidden on the bottom shelf was a stack of 12 issues of Cook’s Illustrated from 2000 to about […]
