Pound cake or butter cake is an absolute

delicious cake.

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

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 tsp baking powder

Few blueberries

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

minutes .

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.
