So Sweet Southern Pecan Pound Cake

Flip it!

TOP Reviews:

Everyone loves this cake when I make it. If your looking for that pound cake with the crunchy crust, look no further. This cake is really heavy, but moist. For you nut lovers, try adding pecans to the batter also. Very good! I would try less sugar next time. Maybe 2 1/2 cups instead of 3. It’s a little sweet for my taste. I also increased the vanilla to 1/2 tbsp for more flavor.

Just what I was looking for. Only made 2 changes, didn’t use the pecans (my husband is allergic, but can’t wait to try making it with the pecans for my dad and myself)and added one ingredient to the recipe-added 1 tsp. of almond extract (along with the 1 tsp. of vanilla extract) My favorite pound cake is the Tastefully Simple Absolutely Almond Pound Cake and this is pretty close. My kids prefer this over chocolate chip cookies! LOVED IT!

This is a classic recipe for pound cake but this is the first time I’ve made it with cake flour rather than all purpose. I’ve decided either can be used with perfect results. Moist, dense, buttery and delicious, just as a good pound cake should be – so long as you cream the butter and sugar well, don’t overmix once the flour mixture is added, and don’t overbake! I skipped the pecans and threw in maybe 1-1/2 cups of blueberries. To finish, I topped the cake with a glaze of powdered sugar and lemon juice. I used a specialty Bundt cake pan and between it and the polka dots of blueberries it made for a beautiful presentation!

This is the perfect pound cake. My benchmark for pound cake is “Sara Lee”…this one is even better. Perfect texture, crumb and flavor! I usually do this without the pecans and bake in loaf pans. Half of the recipe makes one large loaf pan or three small. I also vary the flavoring depending on how I’ll be serving this. Some of my favorites include, coconut, rum and almond flavorings instead of the vanilla. Try this…cut a slice of pound cake, place on a sheet of foil. Butter cake slice and top with a slice of pinapple, place a marachino cherry in the center of the pineapple, sprinkle with about a tsp. of brown sugar. Wrap in the foil; place on the grill and grill until nice and hot; about 10 min. Delicious!

This was made for a friend’s husband that only likes Sour Cream Pound Cakes from Publix’s…. I omitted the nuts as I am allergic to them and can’t cook with them, but everything else was the same. Her husband now only wants me to bake his pound cakes! This was a very moist cake. Will make again! I used a bundt pan to bake it in.

My first ever pound cake attempt was a HUGE success with this recipe. My boyfriend advise a cake this good deserved a marriage proposal. Moist several days later with a great taste.
