"This cake is absolutely delicious. Don't over-mix. I even use cold ingredients. Batter looks like smooth whipped butter. This recipe was given to me by a co-worker. If you like it just call it your 'My Pound Cake'." — ARVILLALAR

2 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
butternut flavored extract
I really cant cook. There I said it. I was skeptical making this because everything else I make will sit there until I eventually throw it away or my toddler decides he'd rather eat SOME. This cake was GONE within two days. TWO days. I couldn't believe it came out of my kitchen. If you really want to show off, add a tablespoon of lemon extract, rum extract, butter extract, vanilla extract and coconut extract.
I still can't believe this cake tasted that dayum good.
And I can't cook (which my husband reminds me of in subtle ways)
Although the flavor was good...just way too much butter for me...just a matter of personal taste I am sure...there are other recipes listed that have good flavor and texture...but are not as WEIGHED down by fat.
I didn't use cake flour (simply because I didn't have it.) and I used powwdered sugar instead. I also increased the baking powder to 2 tsp and added 1 tsp of salt. It was really moist and just perfect.
I enjoy vintage recipes and whether or not you are aware of it - this is as close as you to get to the old "one pound of all ingredients" found in old recipe books. Thank you, Arvilla, for reminding me to make this cake once again! Wonderful flavor.
the best pound cake i have ever made!! the key is don't over mix! delicious
This is the best pound cake I have ever made! I have searched and searched for the right recipe and this is it. Will not search any more! Perfect texture and lots of flavor!
Wonderful, it is the recipe I have been looking for, my husband does not like cakes at all ,I made him taste this cake, and since then he asks me every week to bake him a pound cake. He even takes some to work with his lunch. My twist to this cake is that I used 1 cup of mild and 1/4 cup of fresh orange juice plus the zest on one orange.
I sent the recipe to my friends, they all loved it, Thank you
This was one of the best pound cakes i have ever made! It was very moist and absolutely delicious. The only modification I made to it was instead of the 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract and 1/2 teaspoon butternut flavored extract, I added 1 tablespoon of lemon extract. I will be making this cake again soon.
