Most people have a weakness for chocolate, my weakness is a pound cake. Add cream to it and I’ll walk away! There’s something about the lightness and freshness about a pound cake that makes me want to just keep cutting slices from it and eating it all! Perfect with a side of jam as well and a cup of Turkish my new found love.
I found a super easy recipe to achieve the pound cake taste and texture without all the extra unnecessary ingredients. I tweaked it a little by adding Orange Blossom water to it. You can add anything you want. I’ll be trying cinnamon next time since that’s my second weakness!
1 large orange squeezed and zested
3 large eggs
2/3 cup Butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pre heat over to 180C, blend egg and sugar till it’s a pale yellow and little thick. Around 3 minutes.
Melt butter and add to mixture and then sift the flour and b.p. together. Then add to bowl along with juice and end off with a stir of orange zest and 1 tbsp orange blossom.
Add into greased pan and bake for 40 min.
Pretty straight forward and easy recipe!
