Writing a post after a long break as the kids had their summer break from school. Went back home for a month long vacation as we celebrated my dad’s 70th. It was super fun shopping and getting to dress up for the event. Got thoroughly pampered by mom, ate so many of my favorite dishes. Coming back to reality was so hard :). Finally summer is over and kids are back in school. Everything is starting to fall in place. Once the kids are in school, it is time for me to start thinking of snacks for the evening. Hence decided to bake this butter pound cake.
This is one of the first recipes I learnt from Sanjeevkapoor’s website (can’t find the link to this recipe on that site now), when my baking journey started. Have been baking it for a very long time now and made a few changes to it. This cake is so close to me as it was the only cake I knew to bake many years ago, so I have baked this for several occasions like valentines day, anniversary celebrations and first few years of my daughters birthdays :).
butter ½ cup
salt ⅛ tsp
all-purpose flour 1½ cups
baking powder 1½ tsp
sugar powder 1 cup
eggs 2 (@room temperature)
milk ¾ cup (@room temperature)
vanilla essence 1 tsp
Preheat the oven at 350 deg F.
Prepare a greased pan dusted with flour.
Sieve all-purpose flour, salt and baking powder into a large bowl.
Using a hand mixer or stand mixer cream the butter.
Add eggs, sugar, and vanilla essence.
Beat the mixture well till light and fluffy.
Stir well by adding the flour mixture alternating with milk.
Pour the mixture into the greased baking pan.
Bake it for 45-50 mins or till a skewer inserted in comes out clean.
Let it rest in the pan for about 10 mins and then transfer onto wire rack to cool completely.
Slice the cake and enjoy the slice of butter pound cake with tea or coffee.
