Easy Vanilla Pound Cake

I’ve been looking or an easy and nice recipe of pound cake to try. Though there are some I tried, it doesn’t give the finished product I wanted. There might be something in the recipe or in the procedure that I might miss.

Until one weekend, I got another recipe (I forgot the source) of a simple yet almost-perfect vanilla pound cake to try and I got it as what I expected.

Here is the simple and very easy recipe of pound cake. This is perfect for breakfast paired with a cup of tea or coffee.


1 ½ cups APF, sifter
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ cup butter or margarine at room temperature
1 ¼ cup white sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup milk, I used evaporated milk

Pre-heat oven to 150ºC.
In a bowl, whisk all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Using hand mixer at high speed, mix butter, and sugar until softens and smooth.
Lower the speed to medium setting then add egg one at a time.
Add vanilla. 
Add 1/3 of flour mixture and ½ of milk. Mix until just smooth. Do this step twice.
Add the remaining 1/3 of the flour mixture. Mix until smooth.

Pour the batter into a greased pan.
Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Serve plain or dusted with confectioners sugar.
