Kentucky Butter Sauce Pound Cake, crazy moist and buttery, this cake is delicious. It’s definitely a winner and a recipe you’ll want to keep.
Kentucky Butter Sauce Pound Cake is different than most other pound cakes I’ve tested in my Pound Cake Series. This cake does not have the dense, fine texture that most traditional pound cakes have. Instead, it is more like a sponge cake with a light, fluffy texture.
Furthermore, because of the glaze that poured onto the cake while hot allowing the sauce to seep into the cake, this cake is very moist. It reminds me a lot of a Tres Leche Cake or a bread pudding. Now, don’t get me wrong, that’s a good thing. This is a very good cake and one that I will make over and over again. It’s just not your typical (traditional) pound cake.
Sometimes less is more and this is a tasty, basic cake that’s good served plain, with vanilla ice cream and chocolate or caramel sauce, or with fresh fruit.
