Pound Cake

Baking insect has bit for a while now. These days my house only smell of vanilla essence, sugar, and everything related to baking.
A classic pound cake has always been my all time favourite. Its simple and tastes great when eaten with evening tea or coffee and a great breakfast option too when served with whipped cream and fresh fruits.

Pound Cake

3 Large eggs
3tbsp Milk at Room temperature
1tsp Vanilla Essence
1tsp baking powder
150gms  Castor Sugar (White)
150gms All Purpose Flour
185gms Butter


  • Pre-heat the oven for 15 minutes at 180degrees.
  • Line the cake mould with parchment paper.
  • Whisk together Milk + eggs + Vanilla essence
  • In another bowl mix together all the dry ingredients, All Purpose Flour  + Baking Powder.
  • Now mix in half of the wet ingredients into the dry mixture on low speed. 
  • Add in the remaining mixture. Whisk it for 30 seconds so that everything comes together properly.
  • Pour the batter into the mould and smooth en the top with a spatula or a palette knife.
  • Bake in for 40 -45 minutes or till the tooth pick comes out clean.
  • If the top starts browning cover it with aluminium foil.
  • When its done remove it From the oven
  • De mould and place it on a wire rack.
  • Allow it to cool.
I served the Pound Cake with homemade orange sauce.

How to make orange sauce:

2tbsp sugar

Take a pan reduce the juice and sugar mixture till it becomes thick.
It should be of flowing consistency just like any sauce.
