Pound Cake

Ingredients

3 large (150 grams) eggs, at room temperature

3 tablespoons (40 grams) milk, at room temperature

1 1/2 teaspoons (6 grams) pure vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups (150 grams) all purpose flour

1 teaspoon (4 grams) baking powder

1/4 teaspoon (1 gram) salt

3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated white sugar

3/4 cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature

Method –

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C and place the oven rack in the center of the oven.

Butter or spray with a non stick vegetable spray, a 9 x 5 x 3 inch (23 x 13 x 8 cm) loaf pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and butter or spray the paper.

In a bowl, whisk the eggs, along with the milk and vanilla extract.

In another bowl, mixer, place the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar, and beat on low speed until well mixed (about 30 seconds).

Cut the butter into pieces and add to the dry ingredients, along with half of the egg mixture.

Mix on low speed until the dry ingredients are moistened.

Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat for about one minute

Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.

Add the remaining egg mixture, in two additions, beating well after each addition (about 30 seconds) to incorporate the egg.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon.

Bake for about 40 – 45 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Remove the cake from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes

Slice and enjoy.
