Grilled Pound Cake

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 […]

Perfect Pound Cake

I’ve made a lot of pound cakes, and while this one isn’t the densest and heaviest, it’s one of my favorites. It’s tight crumbed, slices neatly, and is light textured even even though it has a high ratio of butter to flour and sugar. Some people describe this pound cake as similar to the one […]

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 […]

Using vegetable oil in place of butter lets you skip the creaming, and adding lemon, vanilla and spices ensures there’s plenty of flavor.  The texture is dense but very tender (thanks to […]

Hello, and thanks for all the well wishes! It’s been a long week. I headed back to the kitchen yesterday, but my appetite had changed a bit and my usual rich, gooey, chocolate cravings were on the down low. What did sound good was a plain vanilla pound cake, and the King Arthur Flour Whole […]

Mary Jo-Bowen Best Ever Pound Cake

This was posted in the comment section a few weeks ago by Katy, who says it’s the best pound cake ever. Another reader, Jill from Salado, tried it and said it was fabulous. So here’s the recipe. I’ve made this numerous times. It’s basically the same recipe as another favorite “Smoothest Southern Pound Cake” which […]

Richard Sax’s Whipped Cream Pound Cake

  This recipe, which Fuzz loved because it had 4 eggs to crack, is from one of my favorite cookbooks “Classic Home Desserts” by Richard Sax. It’s a simple but informative book with great recipes, a friendly laid back tone, and a bit of history on some classic dessert favorites. This particular recipe was given […]
