Pound cake Recipes

It’s another week of #Tuesdaytips and we are talking Pound cakes. Now you may have seen or tasted poundcake, maybe at Starbucks, which we like their lemon poundcake. But what makes poundcake different than other types?

Well, pound cake is a type of cake traditionally made with a pound of each of four ingredients: flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. Pound cakes are generally baked in either a loaf pan or a Bundt mold. They are sometimes served either dusted with powdered sugar, lightly glazed, or with a coat of icing. They are usually dense and perfectly served with coffee or tea.

The great thing about pound cakes is that they have such versatile flavors and are easy to serve with fruits like berries. Now my biggest tip to making a pound cake in a bunt pan is to use as simple of a one as possible and make sure to butter all the crevices before pouring the batter. Anyway, have fun using the delicious recipes we rounded up below.
