You can never go wrong with a good pound cake for dessert. This pound cake is heavenly! I think the key to this pound cake is using White Lily flour. It makes the cake so light and fluffy while still having the richness you expect from a pound cake.

I baked this in a tube pan. I wanted to have that beautiful, yummy crunchy top to the pound cake. You can use a traditional bundt pan, but that crunchy goodness will be on the bottom of the cake. It will still taste delicious though! We served this with some whipped cream and strawberries. SO good! This is a great dessert for a potluck. It is so easy to make and everyone loves it!

Pound Cake from Heaven – delicious Southern pound cake recipe! Sweet, rich and still as light as a feather. Great for a potluck; everyone loves this! Serve with some fresh whipped cream and strawberries. Can freeze leftovers for a quick dessert later!!

Ingredients:

  • cups unsalted butter softened
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose soft-wheat flour (White Lily)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 (5-oz) can evaporated milk
  • cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan. Set aside.
  • Place butter in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat at medium speed for 6 minutes, until really light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and beat for an additional minute. Add eggs, one at a time, beating just until the yolk disappears.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Combine evaporated milk and heavy cream. Add flour mixture and cream mixture to butter mixture alternately beginning and ending with flour (1/3 flour mixture, 1/2 cream mixture, 1/3 flour mixture, 1/2 cream mixture, 1/3 flour mixture). Beat at slow speed after each addition. Stir in vanilla and almond extract. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 60 to 75 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 1 hour. Remove from pan and continue cooling on wire rack until completely cool.

Notes:

My pound cake was ready at about 60 minutes. The original recipe calls for cooking the cake for 75 minutes. All ovens are different. I suggest checking the cake at 60 minutes and add more time if necessary.

    1. If you do use a bundt pan, make sure to leave some room at the top of the pan so the cake can rise. I usually leave at least an inch – you will more than likely have left over batter.

  1. This recipe is awesome and sooo versatile. I used plain unbleached flour and divided the mix in one standard loaf pan the rest in a square pan ,sprayed with pan flour. After about 60min 2 beautiful pound cakes. Cool and slice the loaf pan one and cut into squares from the square pan, I usually give one away or freeze it, thank you for the greatest pound cake recipe ever Stephanie!

  2. This recipe is AWESOME I make it every other week as it is so versatile, I used a regular loaf pan and a square pan, sprayed with pam-flour, dividing the mixture in both. Once cooked and cooled, the one in loaf pan I slice and the one in Square pan well I cutinto squares ,lol, they come out perfect every time, after about 60 min. I also used plain unbleached flour, works for me, thank you Stephanie!

    1. You would need to divide it between several 9-inch pans. It would be two or three pans – not sure. I am also not sure how long to bake it in a 9-inch pan

  3. I found White Lily flour online but none of them have the name SOFT WHEAT!! Is it the regular White Lily unbleached flour? Self rising? THANKS

    1. I am used to it being called (Plain) or (all purpose) I think some refer to it as cake flour, but to me, cake flour is Swans/in a box. not packaged in a paper bag like the five pound bags.

    2. Bernie – White Lily flour is NOT cake flour. The White Lily flour is packaged in a paper bag like the other brands of flour.

  4. @Jessica A tube pan has a hole in the center with a flat bottom and a bundt pan has a hole in the center with a curved bottom and ridges/indentations all around.

    1. Jessica, A Bundt pan have designs a Tube pan does not. I like Tube pans for my pound cake. Bundt pans are pretty- I just like the old fashioned cake look. Go on Amazon and look the the two pans up. I hope this helps. I know it is an old post.
