Old Fashioned Pound Cake

As we start the New Year we continue to bake from "Great Cakes" by Carole Walter. The winning vote for the "Cake Slice" bakers this month went to Old Fashioned Pound Cake.

I read through the instructions and decided to take my time and follow them as instructed. I even greased my pan and lined it like indicated. So proud of myself!

The very first recipe I baked from this book I rushed through and didn't realize I had to add the sugar a tablespoon at a time during the creaming process between a time of 7 minutes. This recipe was no different. I've got this technique down and use a stopwatch and add a tablespoon of sugar every 30 seconds.

I'm sure there is a reason for the long creaming time. And since Carole Walter hasn't disappointed me yet, I keep trusting her. Let me tell you that I loved this batter! And the aroma from the cake baking in the oven was amazing! I had a slice of this cake while it was slightly warm and it was fabulous! Loved everything about this pound cake!

I hope you take the time to visit my Cake Slice friends and read about their baking experience.
