Pound Cake

I’m bored. When I’m bored, I bake. Pound cake is easy and delicious and we had fresh strawberries so…. Done deal. ย This recipe is for an old fashioned pound cake. No added or crazy ingredients. Butter is the MVP. Do I need to say anything else? Go start your ovens.

What you will need:

9 x 5 inch loaf pan, greased

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
13 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons milk
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl (or bowl of your electric mixer), beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add milk and vanilla and beat until incorporated. Add eggs, one at a time and beat well after each addition. Add in flour mixture until combined.

Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Let cool on wire rack before inverting. Slice and serve with fresh berries and/or whipped cream! Enjoy!
