I just got a call from a referral.

She needs 3 pound cakes. icon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gif Pound cakes are NOT my "thing", but I refuse to turn business away!

Has anyone tried the Sour Cream Pound Cake from the Bake Decorate Celebrate website?
How was it?

Has anyone tried the Lemon Pound Cake II on CC? How was it?

If not, do you have a "Smack your Mamma" recipe for a vanilla and/or lemon pound? (It can be scratch or a mix)

Go to epicurious.com and search for Elvis Presley's favorite poundcake. This is the recipe I use and sell. You can substitute sourcream for the cream to get a sourcream poundcake. I add lemon juice and zest for a lemon pound cake. It's awesome. It has the finest crumb I have ever seen and my customers love it.

That wouldn't happen to be the same thing as "Sock It To Me Cake". That is made with sour cream and has a brown sugar/cinnamon/nut combo to mix in.
I have a recipe for that (doctored mix recipe) at home, could send you later if you want.

cassandrascakes,

Have misplaced my favorite pound cake recipe since remodeling the kitchen...

It had a very fine crumb, but it wasn't a fragile cake. Sounds like Elvis is for me!

Thanks for posting.

cocorum21 Posted 26 Oct 2006 , 8:12pm

me 4!


I was just looking for a pound cake recipe on allrecipies.com. Something tugged me back here!

Ishi Posted 27 Oct 2006 , 1:20am

I just used the pound cake recipe in the Cake Mix Doctor book for my Halloween cake and it was super yummy! It was dense and moist, everything you'd expect from a scratch recipe. Best of all, it was from a mix, so no fail! Good luck!

daltonam Posted 27 Oct 2006 , 2:24am

OK OK OK --but i can't do it today, i let my DH aunt hold my recipe book while we were in colorado & i'm leaving for an out of town wedding tomorrow morning--i'm so tired of going places--i want to sleep in, breakfast in bed, and the kids to sleep in too (don't care about their breakfast, as long as they eat & don't cook for me-lol)

but as soon as i can (sunday/monday) i'll type it up for y'all

oh and cass--I'M SO SORRY

BTW--i'll trade this recipe for a GREAT banana nut bread (that doesn't mush in the middle) recipe. nah j/j i'll give mine anyway icon_biggrin.gif

daltonam Posted 30 Oct 2006 , 2:30pm

okay, so for all of you that wanted the recipe, i haven't forgotten--as soon as my DH's aunt gets home from work, i'm going to get the book from her.

I have a really good cream cheese pound cake recipe, I don't know if it's the same one or not, but here it is:

1 1/2 cups butter
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
3 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
6 eggs
3 cups cake flour
DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease one 10 inch tube pan.
Cream together the butter, cream cheese, and sugar until light. Stir in the vanilla and the almond extracts. Add the flour and the eggs alternately, beginning and ending with the flour. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean

kdhoffert Posted 30 Oct 2006 , 2:43pm

Here's another plain pound cake recipe.

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup butter
2 1/2 cups white sugar
5 eggs
2 teaspoons almond extract
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups cake flour
DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
Cream shortening, butter and sugar until light and fluffy (for best results use an electric mixer). This will take a while. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in almond extract.
Combine baking powder and flour. Stir into creamed mixture alternately with the milk, starting and ending with flour. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

quills Posted 31 Oct 2006 , 6:29pm

cassandrascakes, I tried the Elvis cake this weekend and LOVED it! Thanks for showing me my new standard pound cake! People who didn't like cake (crazy concept, huh?) asked for seconds. My kids have been gobbling it down like they've never been fed before. I'll have to try your variations next. Any other winners you can let me in on? Thanks again!

cassandrascakes Posted 31 Oct 2006 , 10:19pm

You are so welcome quills!! I love it too, and so does every one I have baked it for. There is a german chocolate cake on there also where you boil the sweetened condensed milk to make caramel that is to die for. I'll look through my recipe book on that site and let you know what else is good. I'm glad you like it!

cakeatty Posted 31 Oct 2006 , 10:37pm

I can't wait to try this! I've got a cream cheese poundcake recipe that's to die for but I'm always willing to find Plan B! You never know when you'll need it!

daltonam Posted 1 Nov 2006 , 2:21am

aidee Posted 1 Nov 2006 , 2:32am

czyadgrl,
