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.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. baking powder
- 3 sticks butter, softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 5 eggs
- 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup buttermilk or whole milk
- Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F
- Spray two loaf pans with cooking spray, set aside.
- In a medium bowl, add flour, salt and baking powder; mix until combined.
- In a large bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in the sugar. Add one egg in at a time, until each egg is well incorporated. Beat in vanilla extract. On medium speed, alternate flour mixture and milk (I did this about 4 times).
- Evenly divide the batter between both loaf pans. Bake in oven for 50-060 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
I also wanted to tell you that this cake is so easy to make. I am sure it will be a crowd pleaser. It’s great becuse you get about 20 slices of cake! Yeah!
