Pound Cake

Classic Pound Cake
This is the first thing I've made with my new KitchenAid mixer.
Martha made this the other day on "Martha Bakes"

I let the eggs and butter come to room temperature as directed.

Creamed the butter

Added the sugar a little at a time.

Cracked 8 eggs and added them one at a time.

Double sifted flour with salt and baking powder.

Added the flour, milk and vanilla.

Makes two large loaves. Into the oven (325) they go for 1 1/2 hours.

Came out beautifully except one ran over a little and made a mess in my oven.

Mine came out a little course. I think I mixed it too long after adding the dry ingredients. Martha warns you not to do that! Sorry Martha!
It tastes good though.

I didn't have any blueberries or strawberries so I just drizzled some homemade strawberry jam over a piece. Yummmm.
I love how the mixer works and that you don't have to keep scraping the sides as it mixes.
It's a powerful big thing!!!!

I'm linking this post with the blog parties below:



  1. Happy days! I knew you'd love your KA. Your cake looks delicious too :o)

  2. This looks perfect. I love that you combined it with homemade jam. What a lovely combination.

  3. I don't have a kitchen aid but I do have a Kenwood stand mixer. Just mixed something up in it in fact and sitting down to blog browse while it bakes.

  4. YUM! Love me some pound cake! Now not to gain pounds eating it or just drooling over your pics... :)

  5. That looks so good! I believe Martha would be envious!
