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.

Recipe type: Cake
Cuisine: American

  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F
  2. Spray two loaf pans with cooking spray, set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, add flour, salt and baking powder; mix until combined.
  4. 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).
  5. 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.
