Pound cake or butter cake is an absolute
The traditional pound cake was made with a
pound of each of the 4 ingredients,butter,flour,
sugar and eggs.
During my childhood days , I remember any
birthday cakes will be made with pound
cake,buttercream icing,royal icing .Today the
innovations are on the roll .Whatever it leads
to,..the pound cake has a distinct flavour which
no one could resist.
So here’s to an awesome recipe .
200 gm butter
200 gm sugar
200 gm flour
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp baking powder
Few cashew nuts
A pinch of salt ( avoid if using salted butter)
Beat butter and sugar till creamy
Add one egg at a time and beat well .
Add milk and essence .
Fold in the flour,and mix lightly till well
Pour into a well greased tray .
Add the blueberries and nuts on the top.
Bake in a moderate oven (180 C) for 30-35
Tip: To prevent the mixture from curdling ,
while adding eggs,add 1-2 tsp of flour .
Even if the mixture looks curdled do not
worry ,it will be fine when flour is added.
