Million Dollar Pound Cake is straight out of my Grandma’s recipe field. It’s buttery, dense, delicate and moist. I topped mine with honey buttercream and contemporary blueberries. It’s the PERFECT pound cake!
I’m excited to have developed this recipe in partnership with Bob’s Red Mill. I’ve used their merchandise for years, and love getting the chance to collaborate. All opinions expressed are my very own.
Did I ever let you know my favourite meals group is cake? Especially truffles you could prime with ALL the issues like this Million Dollar Pound Cake…frosting, fruits, whipped cream, sweet, caramel sauce, chocolate ganache, a dusting of powdered sugar…sort of like a select your individual journey cake.
Now, I don’t know why that is referred to as “Million Dollar” pound cake, I’m simply the messenger right here. I discovered this recipe in my mother’s recipe card field, and it stated that it was “From the Kitchen of Arlene”. I’ve zero recollection of an Arlene in my childhood, however dang, she made a superb cake.
The cake itself is freaking ridiculous. You know I really like a superb buttery, pound cake, and this one stands as much as all the remainder. The texture is dense, however with a delicate, moist crumb. It’s buttery, wealthy, and the perimeters have a candy crunch.
I actually can’t say sufficient concerning the texture of this cake…ESPECIALLY for those who let it sit in a single day. I like this cake heat…as a result of duh, who doesn’t like heat cake? But if in case you have endurance, let it sit in a single day, and all of the flavors mix fantastically, and the cake will get dense and delicate. Seriously, it’s that good.
In a cake that’s so easy, like this one, you actually need to depend on high quality substances to realize the perfect taste. Use good eggs, use pure vanilla extract, use prime quality butter, and naturally use the perfect flour. I LOVE Bob’s Red Mill Unbleached All Purpose Flour… it’s unbleached, unbromated, enriched baking flour milled from prime quality North American wheat. It’s excellent to make use of in truffles, cookies, yeast breads, biscuits, muffins…actually all the things.
Bob’s Red Mill merchandise are additionally licensed Kosher, and made with substances grown from non-GMO seeds. So, past being flavorful, I be ok with the substances that I take advantage of to feed my household.
The cake batter is de facto easy, solely 6 substances. This cake bakes at a decrease temperature for about an hour and forty minutes, letting the cake bake during, whereas giving the perimeters a golden brown colour with out burning.
And as soon as it’s baked and cooled is when you will get artistic. I topped mine with a creamy honey buttercream frosting that’s INSANE btw.

Like are you even for actual proper now? The cake, the frosting, the berries…
I extremely recommend you narrow your self a small(ish) slice.
