I have wanted the perfect pound cake recipe. I think I have found it. I watch the cake shows. I see how easily they can move around their cakes. I see how easily the cakes carve. I know they often use pound cake. My sister recently said she had her friend’s pound cake and it was amazing. She asked for the recipe because she knew I would want it. I’m glad her friend was willing to share. You will be glad too because this recipe is delicious. We all spent the evening going back for more of the carvings off the top. It was easy to make and easy to work with after that. Like I said – yummy. I know this has officially become a favorite go-to recipe for me.

Put mix in greased & floured cake pan (See my Cake Making 101 to see how I do cake pans). The recipe made two 8×2 cake pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until toothpicks come out clean.
Of course I have my helper – she really has become an amazing little sous chef:
This looks delicious! I am going to Pin it so I can drool later. 🙂
I couldn’t Pin it. I don’t think your pictures are compatable. 🙁
Weird – I have had no problem pinning my own stuff. I just tried again, and it pinned fine for me. I just pinned it to cakes on my Pinterest board if you want to go there. Thanks!
I made this today with the help of my 3 year old son (I cut the recipe in half and just did one round pan). We made the cake as a random surprise for my husband, who is very picky with sweets (it seems like everything is too sweet for him) and he loved it! It was moist and delicious like a pound cake should be. My son was so proud to help and my husband told him “you should make this more often” 🙂
Thanks so much for reporting back with your success with this recipe. It is always so helpful for other readers and a real encouragement for me. I’m so glad you found a recipe your husband will enjoy. It also is so fun to hear about the bonding time with your son. Such a fun read for me. I really appreciate you taking the time to comment.
