Whipping Cream Pound Cake Recipe is crusty on the outside and velvety smooth on the inside.
Both dense and moist, this Whipping Cream Pound Cake Recipe is a tried and true cake recipe that will become your family favorite!
I have many Pound Cake recipes in my repertoire. I have Whipping Cream Pound Cake Recipe, Cream Cheese Pound Cake, Sour Cream Pound Cake, Greek Yogurt Pound Cake, Chocolate Pound Cake, Blue Ribbon Pound Cake and the list goes on and on. As I’ve stated before, desserts, in particular, Pound Cake are my most favorite thing to make. I’ve been wanting to do a series for you and it finally hit me, “Why not do the one thing that I love the most? Make all the Pound Cake recipes and share them with you!” That’s precisely what I’m going to do over the next few weeks.
I cut this Whipping Cream Pound Cake recipe out of our local newspaper years and years ago. Then about 10 years ago, I also found it in a local cookbook with slight variations. Then I’ve made my own tweaks to the recipe and that’s what you’ll find below.
In the cookbook, they tell a story of how it was Elvis Presley’s favorite pound cake. Now, I live in the town in which Elvis was born. This very well could be true. Or, it could be false. Or, half-true. I’ve found that stories get bigger and more exaggerated the more they’re told so take that with a grain of salt.
What I do know, this is my personal favorite pound cake recipe. It’s sweet without being overly sweet. It pairs well with fresh or grilled fruit. It’s good with ice cream. It’s good with fruit sauce and whipped cream. It’s good with caramel sauce. It’s good all by itself (my favorite way to eat this Whipping Cream Pound Cake recipe.) Coincidentally, my second favorite pound cake recipe is the Amaretto Pound Cake that I shared earlier with you on callmepmc.com
Along the way, I’ll give you tips and suggestions. I’ll tell you what I like about that particular pound cake and what I don’t.
I foresee running extra miles too.
First things first, when it comes to measuring flour, a cup is not always a cup. Please read this post on how to correctly measure flour.
About Whipping Cream Pound Cake Recipe
This pound cake is very dense and moist. The batter is thick and it takes a long time to bake, 1 hour and 30 minutes. It’s is worth the wait. The pound cake is ‘crusty’ on the outside and has a soft, tender texture and small crumb inside. You’ll be tempted to take the cake out at 1 hour and 15 minutes because the outside is golden brown. Do not. Test it carefully (without moving the cake too much) with a small, long wooden skewer. The cake is done with no crumbs or dry crumbs are on the skewer.
It takes a little patience to make. You’ll need to cream the butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy.
Also, add the eggs one at a time, sometimes I want to dump them all in at once, but resist the urge.
Finally, allow the cake to cool at least 20 minutes in the pan before inverting it onto a platter.
Complete detailed instructions are below in the recipe box.
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 cup real butter, at room temperature (no substitution)
- 6 large eggs at room temperature
- 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whipping cream, NOT WHIPPED (also known as heavy cream)
- 1 tablespoon good vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Spray a bundt pan with non-stick spray.
- *If you have a two part bundt pan, wrap aluminum foil around the outside of the bundt pan to prevent any batter from leaking out.
- In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream butter until smooth. Add sugar and cream until smooth about 2 to 3 minutes no medium speed.
- Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
- Add flour and heavy cream alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour.
- Add vanilla and mix on low to medium until well combined.
- Pour batter into a buttered and floured 10-inch tube or bundt pan.
- Bake for 1 hour 25 to 30 minutes. (it takes the full 90 minutes for mine)
- Cool in
pa20 to 25 minutes before inverting onto a serving tray to cool completely.
- Store in an airtight container on the countertop 3 to 4 days.
