Classic Pound Cake + {Mother’s Day Giveaway}

Congratulations, Tatertot374! You are the winner of How To: Simplify’s Calphalon Bakeware Giveaway! I e-mailed you with instructions on how to claim your prize!

Thank you to all who participated in the giveaway! I had so much fun learning about your favorite desserts that you like to bake. I hope you enjoy following How To: Simplify and all of the tips, tricks and recipes that are shared to help simplify life in the kitchen!

Happy Mother’s Day!

The other day I was at the store when I came across a tube pan that I knew I had to buy. Having never owned a tube pan in the past, I’ve never had the opportunity to bake with one so I was excited to give it a try.

I started researching different cakes and desserts that I could prepare with it and that’s when I stumbled upon a recipe for a classic pound cake in the most recent issue of Southern Living Magazine. I fell in love with the recipe almost immediately because it was right in line with being simple and easy to prepare. It required only six ingredients and six steps to create this buttery, from-scratch dessert. Plus, I already had all of the ingredients on hand!

Originally, the name “pound” was given to these cakes because they required one pound of butter, one pound of eggs, one pound of sugar and one pound of flour. Today, the proportions can be slightly different in some recipes but the result resembles the original: a rich, moist and buttery cake with a lovely golden crust.

Classic Pound Cake

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Place flour, sugar, butter, milk, eggs and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Beat at a low speed for one minute, stop to scrape down the sides and beat again for an additional two minutes.
  3. Pour into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan and smooth.
  4. Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a long pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from pan to wire rack and cool completely (1 hour).

There is something about rolling out the pie dough, lovingly gathering the ingredients and then putting it all together that helps put everything right in the world. Not to mention how great it tastes when it comes out of the oven. My pecan pie has been known to cure depression at times.
