Perfect Pound Cake Recipes

45 Perfect Pound Cake Recipes

Pound Cakes are one of my most favorite cakes to make and to eat. I just like the process of making a Pound Cake; it’s a stress reliever for me.

Did you know that the name Pound Cake developed because originally there was a pound each of butter, sugar, eggs and flour? There was no leavening agent like baking powder or soda. Only the eggs and the air whipped into it made it rise. Because of their dense nature, baking in a loaf pan or bundt pan was necessary in order for the cake to cook completely throughout.

What about that little history lesson? :)

I actually do like to know where food originated, how it developed etc. It’s the nerd in me, I suppose. I watched an entire 2 hour show on the history of coffee the other night. Granted, I probably would have changed it but the dog was asleep on my leg and my husband fell asleep hogging holding the remote. I couldn’t reach it. I was stuck! I did learn a lot of interesting facts and was able to impress the heck out of Big Daddy the next morning!

However, I don’t even drink coffee, but that show made me want to! For those of you that do drink coffee, I hear it’s great with Pound Cake! I just so happen to have a variety of Pound Cake recipes to share with you today. You’ll find lighter cakes and traditional cakes, simple cakes and cakes with nuts, fruits and spices. I hope you find just the right one to bake!

Let’s begin with this Classic Vanilla Pound Cake, included in this post is a great “How-to” tutorial on making Pound Cakes.

  1. […] browned sugar usually turns into burned sugar! This Caramel Sauce is great over ice cream, cakes, Pound Cakes, pancakes and waffles. Once you try it, you’ll want to keep a jar full in your fridge at all […]
