Hi Friends! Who doesn’t like a yummy pound cake? Of course there are bunches of recipes floating around, but I recently tried this one and thought you might like it too.
I found the recipe on Paula’s blog, Call me PMc. Since she doesn’t want her recipe copied, I need to send you to her blog.
Something didn’t want me to make this cake! The first attempt: I left the butter out to warm to room temperature, but my husband saw it on the counter and put it back in the fridge. The second attempt: I didn’t leave enough butter out. It takes 4 sticks, and I only took out 2. The third attempt, the beater knocked my egg into the bowl! In my panic to turn off the mixer, I turned it on HIGH and the egg shell exploded all in the batter. What a waste! I wasn’t happy, but I had to throw it all away. LESSON LEARNED. DO NOT CRACK THE EGG ON THE MIXER BOWL. HAVE EGGS ALREADY BROKEN AND POURED INTO A SEPARATE BOWL!
I didn’t give up though — I was determined!
Ok, back to my happy place. I love to use my Pampered Chef bundt cake “pan” (though it is really a baking stone). Yay! I had another reason to use my bundt dish! Paula warned that this cake was going to be tall and wow, she was right!
I should have known this cake was going to grow like crazy! Now I understand why Paula mentioned wax paper to make the pan/bowl taller.
Here is my batter BEFORE I placed it in the oven.
While it was baking it grew!
Even though I didn’t add wax paper to make the bowl taller, it turned out fine.
Yes, it is delicious! I would offer you a piece if I could.
Since I can’t copy the ingredients or recipe — I am sending you over to Paula’s blog. Visit her and find the delicious cake recipe by clicking HERE.
Since my favorite type of pound cake is lemon flavored, I will use lemon extract next time.
I hope you enjoy!
