Pound Cake

Traces of vanilla and sweet cake flavors are lightly packed in this fluffy pound cake recipe. This is the perfect cake for morning coffee or as a mid-day because you deserve it snack. When this loaf of precious pound cake comes out of the oven the edges should be slightly browned and the cake should be allowed to stand and cool a bit prior to eating. The sweetness is at its peak fresh out of the oven, so I recommend cutting yourself a small slice and giving it a taste test when cool enough to touch. The aromas of fresh baked goods truly are worth the time to prepare. This cake keeps well and is a delicious reward to have around the house that everyone will surely appreciate.

This cake goes great with strawberries, ice cream or by itself. Be sure to watch the video and follow the instructions below to have this Pound Cake in your kitchen ready for consumption. Make sure you have predictable results by using a good pan, pyrex is not recommended for this recipe as cook times may vary.
