Whipping Cream Pound Cake Recipe
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.
Also known as Elvis Presley 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. This cake is good with ice cream, fruit sauce, and whipped cream. You may also enjoy it with caramel sauce. And, certainly, 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.

Whipping Cream Pound Cake Recipe Tips
- This pound cake is very dense and moist. The batter is thick and it takes a long time to bake, 1 hour and 15 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 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.
- 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.
- I use this tube pan. You can also use this bundt pan.
- 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.
