Whipping Cream Pound Cake

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.

Whipping Cream Pound Cake

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.

    I am going to do the Whipping Cream Pound Cake for Easter, also, am going to try several of your others, they look wonderful. Would I be able to use a large cupcake fluted pan and if so, would the time frame be the same?

    Thanks so much and Happy Easter to you.

    Hi Paula, this looks amazing, but is 1/2 cup of butter right? It looks like it’s too little…

    Thanks in advance!

    In response to your statement about Elvis favoring this cake, I have a clipping from TV Guide dated August 16, 1997 with a similar recipe. The story from the TV Guide article is as follows:
    A friend of Elvis’ , from Tupelo, Janelle McComb would make 2 loaves of this
    cake for him every Christmas. He would consume one on his own and share
    the other loaf with his entourage.

    Here’s the recipe:


    3 Cups Sugar 3 Cups Cake Flour, Sifted Twice
    ½ Pound Butter, Softened 1 Cup (8 OZ) Whipping Cream
    7 Eggs, Room Temperature 2 Tsp. Vanilla extract

    Thoroughly butter and flour a 10-inch tube pan or 2 loaf pans. Cream together the sugar and butter. Add eggs one at a time, beating extremely well after each addition. Mix in half of the flour, then the whipping cream, then the other half of the flour. Beat 5 full minutes. Add vanilla. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Set in cold oven and turn heat to 350 degrees. Bake 60 – 90 minutes, until a sharp knife inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan 5 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan and cool thoroughly.

    Like your version, this is a keeper for pound cake lovers.

    I have been making this cake for years also. I sift 1/8 tsp. Of salt in with my flour and I use 1/2 tsp. Of vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp. of almond extract. It makes a world of difference in the taste. This is a cake everyone always wants me to bring.

    I’m wondering if there was a typo in the recipe “heavy cream pound cake” Made the cake, it is dense and moist, however seems overly sweet to me for a pound cake. Is it really 3 cups of sugar.?

  7. Gail says

    My mom used to make this pound cake for our family when i was little. We loved it. I had lost the recipe. Thanks for having it on your Web site. Now I can make it for my family.

    • says

      Thank you for the kind words, Gail. This series has been so fun for me, I’ve made this recipe for years too and it’s one of my favorites, but some of the other pound cake recipes I found digging in my mother’s recipe box.

    In the Dunkin Donuts pound cake you didn’t specify which kind of donuts you used in the recipe. Would you use old fashioned cake or glazed donuts or something else?
