Greetings! Strawberry season is upon us and what goes better with strawberries than pound cake? This is my favorite thing to make strawberry shortcake with, hands down. When I was a kit, the Sara Lee all butter pound cake was a favorite treat, but then there was my grandmother’s homemade butter cake that took the cake! This cake is just like that cake and something that Sara Lee aspires to be!
This cake is super simple to make and uses common ingredients that you will have on hand. We all have butter, eggs, sugar, flour and milk and that is pretty much all that goes into this and then the flavorings. I have used vanilla and almond extract, but you do what you like! Make this a lemon pound cake with a bit of lemon juice and some lemon extract, or even an orange or lime pound cake. You can make a rum pound cake, a coconut pound cake or you can just have a look at what types of extracts and/or flavorings you have available to you and throw caution to the wind. I have a fabulous recipe for a five flavor pound cake that I will be sharing with you sometime in the future that is just to die for!
This recipe makes a large 10 cup tube or angel food cake pan or 10 cup Bundt pan or you can do what I did and make two standard loaves with it, which is my preference because I think pound cake should be a loaf, not a round cake. No matter what shape you choose, you are going to enjoy this cake immensely!
So I hope that you give this simple and delicious, old fashioned butter pound cake a try and I hope you love it!
