Classic Pound Cake

Classic Pound Cake

 

Pound cakes are so deliciously classic. A simple, no frills batter that can be the side kick to any extravagant dessert, or be a star all on its own.

Pound cake always make me think of strawberry shortcakes! Dense cake, ripe strawberries, and fluffy whipped cream. Are you drooling yet? Since strawberries are currently not in season, I made this cake sans them, and it stood up all by itself! You can of course use whatever fruit is in season if you want, but why tamper with perfection…

Pound cakes are super dense and as such, require a long baking time. This recipe requires 80-90 minutes, and you have to let it bake that whole time. It’s worth it.
