A classic pound cake basically is a mixture of eggs , all purpose flour, sugar and butter .The four ingredients, each measure a pound. It doesn’t rely on leavening agents to give the cake any lift or anything extra to make it moist. My healthy way of making pound cake is with wheat and coconut sugar. Its a buttery cake with a nice dense texture. Pound cakes are usually made in loaf pans or bundt pan. I made small quantity so have used small square pan. Cakes with eggs and butter are little heavy when compared to oil based cakes but butter cakes are outstanding with their taste and texture. All my brown ingredients make my bakes appear brown in colour and I am in love with this colour. Baking needs precision so, weighing the ingredients in weighing scale is very much required and room temperature butter whips easily and it does make a difference in the texture of the crumb. This can be served slightly glazed or with a coat of icing. Follow the steps , try this moist, so delicious wheat pound cake for your family and enjoy it! Happy baking!!!
