Pound Cake Made with Powdered Sugar

I came across this recipe in one of my old cookbooks. It caught my eye because it uses powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar. I have heard of using powdered sugar in a pound cake. I had to try it. The result? Delicious! The cake is soft and tender and tastes great. Not super sweet and perfect with some whipped cream and strawberries.

How to Make Pound Cake from Scratch

Making a pound cake from scratch is very easy. Start with mixing together butter and powdered sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Next add the eggs, vanilla, and a little lemon juice. Finally, add the cake flour. Pour the batter in to a bundt cake pan and bake.

Please note this recipe uses cake flour. I have not made this cake with all-purpose flour so I can not say how the cake would turn out if you don’t use cake flour.

Can Pound Cake be Frozen?

You can make this pound cake a day in advance and store it on the counter in an air-tight container. You can also make the cake and freeze it for later. YASSS! You can freeze the whole cake or cut it into slices and freeze the individual slices. I have a few slices in our freezer right now. Perfect with a cup of coffee.

We like to serve this Powdered Sugar Pound Cake with a dusting of powdered sugar and a dollop of whipped cream. You can also top the cake with a quick powdered sugar and milk glaze. Either way, it will be delicious!

  1. I had a similar recipe for Pineapple Pound Cake from an old cookbook and cannot find it. Can you tell me how to add canned pineapple to the batter?
    Thank you.
