Vanilla Pound Cake with Fresh Berries #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper we are sharing with you recipes that are red, white and blue; perfect for Memorial Day weekend.  The recipe that I am sharing with you has been on my foodie bucket list for a while now.  I am just so excited, because it actually turned out.  This is my Vanilla Pound Cake with Fresh Berries.

My cake turned out moist, sweet, but not to sweet and frankly I found it to be delicious and it has the perfect vanilla flavor.  I am just so proud!  The cake goes wonderful with fresh berries and just a dollop of whip cream. Yum!

But I have to admit to you I am having issues with my oven.  It tends to cook too fast.  I put my loaf pans on a baking sheet to prevent the cake from browning to quickly on the outside, while still cooking in the center.  I am not sure how to fix this?  My cake only took an hour to bake and most pound cakes take at least 15 minutes more, so I am telling you to know your oven.  I started checking it at the 40 minute mark and found 60 minutes was best for me.

    My oven was also cooking too fast and I got an oven thermometer and discovered it was hotter than what I had set. So I have to adjust, like set it for 345° instead of 350°F.

  2. Pound cake with berries is one of my favorite summer desserts I was going to recommend an oven thermometer, too.

  4. Vanilla Pound Cake is one of my favorites and the fruit is such a refreshing bonus. Great point about knowing ones oven!

  5. I have so much respect for your baking abilities! I’m not confident enough to be able to pull ingredients together off the top of my head like that. I’m pleased it was so successful and thank you for participating this week.
