Prefect Pound Cake~~Sweet Punch

Our this month's Sweet punch challenge is this incredible pound cake..Its a simple but an addictive and super delicious pound cake everyone at home enjoyed a lot..This cake goes for easy ingredients and easy breezy preparation..This pound cake been choosed from The Cake Bible,where Rose has come up with a new method of baking the cake,very different from the butter-sugar creaming and wet+dry ingredients,the usual cake route.This method,according to Rose ensures a tight crumb,similar to that of Sara Lee Pound cake which is as perfect as a Pound Cake can be...Thanks to Rose for sharing this different way of preparing pound cake, yep it works out wonder and the texture turned out super spongy and super moist..I used six cup loaf mould pan for making this incredible pound cake which get vanished very much quickly once they came out of the oven..


3nos Eggs (large)
1+1/2cups Cake flour (sifted)
3/4tsp Baking powder
3/4cup Sugar
1+1/2tsp Vanilla
3tbsp Milk
1/4tsp Salt
13tbsps  Butter (room temperature)

Preheat the oven to 350F, grease the loaf pan or six cup loaf pan..Lightly whisk the eggs,milk and vanilla in a medium bowl, meanwhile take the dry ingredients in a large bowl,mix for few seconds, add the softened butter and half of the egg mixture,mix until the dry ingredients get moistened, beat in medium speed for a minutes, this helps aerate and develop the cake's structure, scrap down the sides..

Add the remaining egg mixture as two batches and beat again for few minutes,scrap down the sides and pour the batter into prepared pan, smooth the surface with a spatula and bake for 35-40minutes until a woooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean..

Let the cake gets cool completely and enjoy..

For making cake flour at home: Take one cup of all purpose flour and remove 2 tbsp from it.Replace the 2 tbsp flour with cornflour and sift together 2-3 times.Cake flour is ready to use.
