I chanced on this very salubrious buttery, salubrious-searching textured, a tiny bit spongy (which i like) cake in acakebakesinbrooklyn.com. The methodology of making ready batter is terribly attractive but interestingly contributes to the cake’s texture. Even supposing you mix the butter with the flour and no longer the sugar as in most butter/pound cakes, and the egg and butter ratio is terribly high, the cake surprisingly turns out powerful lighter than that it’s likely you’ll assign a matter to. It has been some time since I ate a Sara Lee Pound cake but I contemplate that the identical softness and uniform crumb of Sara Lee shall be chanced on in this cake. I like to serve it with raspberries or strawberries and a tiny of whipped cream. Nevertheless I also admire a cut by itself or with coffee or tea; or for a picnic. Revel in!
Display: Popular recipe asks for almond extract but I’m no longer too excited by it. I take hold of the combo of vanilla and orange extract. Nevertheless, this cake is versatile sufficient that you just can expend the extract of your preference. Genuinely be happy to also add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, or nuts…. —Regine

- Space butter and flour in an electrical mixing bowl and beat at low bustle for five (yes FIVE) minutes. Add eggs one at a time, mixing every egg at insensible bustle.
