The BEST Homemade Pound Cake – I’ve been making this cake for over 20 years and it never fails me! Seriously DELICIOUS!!! The key to success is to have all your ingredients at room temperature. Butter, shortening, sugar, eggs, flour, baking powder, milk, vanilla and lemon extract. Can freeze leftover for a sweet treat later! Make this ASAP! #poundcake #dessert #cakerecipe
This is hands-down The BEST Homemade Pound Cake! I’ve been making this recipe for ages and just realized that I’ve never shared it on the blog. I had to rectify that oversight ASAP!
I got this recipe from a co-worker over 15 years ago. She was an amazing baker and graciously shared some of her best cake recipes with me. This Homemade Pound Cake has become a staple in our house. It is incredible. Light and fantastic flavor. Perfect with just a dollop of whipped cream and some berries. It is also great with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

Whip up this Homemade Pound Cake the next time you need a dessert. It is great for potlucks and dinner parties. It also makes a great homemade gift! If you decided to keep this all for yourself, you can freeze the cake and enjoy it later. I like to slice it and double wrap the slices in freezer plastic wrap. Perfect when you want a quick sweet treat!!
