This pound cake has such a wonderful velvet-y texture and is loaded with lots of buttery and vanilla flavor.
Wow! It’s been a long week (and a few days) and I have to admit, it’s been a little hard getting back into the swing of things in terms of work BUT I’m finally back! And I’m back with a tasty recipe for you guys. Let’s get right into it. If you have been searching for the perfect pound cake recipe, look no further. This pound cake is one of my favorite cakes I’ve ever made! Like, ever. And that’s a lot coming from a chocolate-loving girl. I deem this cake the HOLY GRAIL of all pound cakes. It’s buttery, it’s rich and every bite gets better and better.
You know those desserts you make and you have a little sliver here.. a little sliver there and before you know it you ate practically half of it? This is one of those desserts. It’s insane how addicting this cake is! My family and I loved it so much that I made it 3 times in 2 weeks. That’s a lot of cake! All of those calories were so worth it though.
Speaking of calories, I wouldn’t even dare to calculate them for this cake but trust me, like I said, SO worth it. It’s okay to indulge every once in a while!
I am obsessed with the texture of this cake. The texture is velvety smooth with a very light crumb but very dense like a good pound cake should be. It practically melts in your mouth.
While this cake is ridiculously delicious on it’s own, I love using it in a plethora of desserts. One of my favorites is strawberry shortcake. I absolutely love this recipe, the only thing I change is I make homemade whipped cream and triple the amount. OH MY GOD, insanity. You need to try it. And that reminds me that I really want to make that this weekend for the BBQ’s!
When I say this butter pound cake is good, it is goo-ooood.
