Super Moist Pound Cake

This a family recipe from my uncle. I use this for most of my fondant covered cakes because it is a really dense cake that can hold up to the weight. Enjoy!

5.Add flour to creamed mixture stirring until combined
6.Stir in vanilla
7.Pour batter into a well greased 10" tube pan

I’ve made this 2x and really like it. I use only 1 tsp of vanilla but add 2 tsp of rum. Be careful with baking time. Mine did not take anywhere near 1 hr 45 minutes.

I am glad you liked it. I have only altered to a chocolate version so far. And yes I rarely put it in a bundt pan to bake. I usually make it in 2 8" pans which takes about an hour

Thanks for sharing! I was looking for a dense cake recipe, for wedding cakes. May I ask something? Since you don’t put any baking soda or baking powder the flour you use is it self rising ?

Nadia,
Actuallly I use all purpose flour. The cake rises very nicely all on its own!!!

Do u think changing the margarine to using all butter would make a difference please Jennifer?

Mardie unfortunately I am not sure. I never went to culinary school so I don’t really know the science of it all. I am just a hobby baker. I find a recipe I like and I make it. :)

I guess I would say try it and see if it comes out ok or not? Sorry I can’t really be of more help.
