Tips for Making the BEST Cake

This easy pound cake recipe results in a delicious bundt cake with a tender crumb, but you should be aware of some cake baking basics.

  • Use the scoop and level method to measure your flour to avoid a dense cake.
  • Make sure NOT to over-mix the batter if you want a light, fluffy cake.
  • For best results, use ingredients that are at room temperature when making the batter.
  • Do NOT open the oven door while baking until it is time to test it.
  • The cake is done when a toothpick inserted into it comes out clean.
  • Allow your cake to completely cool before removing from pan.
  • You can use this recipe to make cupcakes too. Just fill cupcake liners 2/3 full and bake for 20-22 minutes.

Leftovers & Storage

Leftover cake should be wrapped tightly in cling wrap and left on your kitchen counter. If you wish to refrigerate the leftover cake, make sure to place it in an airtight container. Cake can be stored on the counter or in the fridge for up to five days.

Like many cakes, this pound cake freezes great! Wrap leftover cake tightly with plastic wrap, then place in a freezer bag or wrap over again with aluminum foil, and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight on your kitchen counter when ready to enjoy.

Ingredients & Substitutions

Cake flour – If you don’t have any cake flour on hand you can use all-purpose flour with cornstarch to achieve the fluffiness that cake flour gives this cake. To make your own cake flour substitute, measure out your flour, then remove 3 Tablespoons. Add back in 3 Tablespoons of cornstarch. Then sift your flour twice over so it is nice and fluffy like cake flour. Ready to use! Spoon and level the flour when measuring it, otherwise you’ll wind up with a dense cake.

Butter – Room temperature butter, if you use salted, reduce the additional salt. Don’t substitute with oil or margarine, the butter brings a lot of flavour.

Sugar – Just plain old white granulated sugar to sweeten the cake.

Eggs – Must be at room temperature for best results!

Cream – Use only heavy cream here. The extra fat helps make the cake rich but light.

Vanilla Extract – Use pure vanilla extract for the best flavour, but artificial is just fine too.

Powdered sugar – For dusting. This is optional, you can omit if you like.
