Melt in your Mouth Strawberry Buttermilk Pound Cake
Recently I share Real Fruit Strawberry Buttermilk Pound Cake (No Jello or Kool-Aid). I was so proud that I had developed a great Strawberry Pound Cake recipe that used real fruit, tasted natural and wonderful.
However, the first person that asked me if I had a Strawberry Pound Cake recipe was turned off by the extra step of condensing the pureed strawberries into the paste that’s needed to get that intense strawberry flavor without too much liquid for the recipe. (sad face)
Instead of being sad, I set out to develop an equally as good, but more simple Strawberry Pound Cake recipe for you.
Melt in your Mouth Strawberry Buttermilk Pound Cake will literally melt-in-your-mouth. It has an intense strawberry flavor much like a strawberry lollipop. This cake is moist and dense. It also has that crusty top that makes a good pound cake a good pound cake!
I prefer all pound cakes warm. This one was especially good served warm with vanilla bean ice cream. A homemade whipped cream is also good. Maybe I tried both!
Melt in your Mouth Strawberry Buttermilk Pound Cake Tips
- Always use real butter in pound cake recipes unless the recipe specifically gives you a substitution.
- Use good quality ingredients. Premium flour, butter, and vanilla especially. It really does make a difference in taste.
- The standard in any recipe is to use Grade A Large eggs. If you use a smaller egg use this guide for substitutions.
- This is my favorite Tube Pan for baking pound cakes.
