Hi guys, today we’re going to share how to make Pound cake at home.

Introduction:

What’s pound cake? “

Pound” means the recipes that contained one pound of butter, one pound of sugar, one pound of eggs and one pound of flour.

However, we have changed our pound cake recipe from the original one because we want to make the healthier cake.

Although we have reduced the quantity of sugar, it still works. They are moist, rich and taste buttery flavor inside and look golden brown outside.

Making pound cake is quite easy, the ingredients are simple and the cooking time is short. Everyone loves pound cake. The ingredients in making pound cake are very simple, just flour, sugar, salt, baking powder(optional), butter, eggs, pure vanilla extract and milk.

There are different ways to make pound cake. The first way we called “Creaming method”. It means mix the butter and sugar togethe then mix until combined, you will see the mixture become fluffy and pale.

After that, add milk and eggs slowly then add flour at last and mix well. Finally the pound cake mixture was done.

Normally people use creaming method for making pound cake but we don’t.  We have tried different ways to make this cake so we will introduce the second way.  That is much easier and faster.

If you choose this method for making pound cake, make sure all of the ingredients are in room temperature and follow our instructions step by step.
