Pound Cake

Posted on January 3rd, 2013 in Stories


Pound cake.



Over Christmas, I made Ben’s grandmother’s pound cake.  Nana, heaven bless her soul, was known for her perfect pound cake.



Luckily, I made a pound cake that Ben said would make Nana proud.

And while I can’t share Nana’s pound cake as it’s a family secret, I can share one just like it. 


Three things to remember:


- always put the cake in a cold oven

- almond extract and vanilla extract

- Cake flour (If you have all purpose, shift it first.  Trust me.)



One bite and it’ll be Christmas all over again.


Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new story mañana and a special announcement!

    Such great tips on how to make a good pound cake! I didn’t realise that the cake had to go into a cold oven! The things no one tells you – until they do.

    Remove 2 tbsp of all purpose flour per cup and replace them with 2 tbsp of corn starch. Voila! Cake flour. I’m so proud of you for carrying on Ben’s Nana’s tradition!
