I know I have been neglecting my blog, and I feel really terrible about that. So to make up for it I will be sharing recipes :D. I have several recipes I’ve already converted to share with my British friends, so all recipes will be in weight measurements and in American cup measurements to make it easier for everyone to follow. I will start with a family favorite, meaning a favorite of my wonderful husband. Actually all the recipes I post will probably fall into that category, favorites of my wonderful husband.
Liz’ Pound Cake
206g / 1 US cup margarine
700g / 3 US cups sugar
580g / 3 US cups flour
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda / baking soda
227ml / 1 US cup milk
Cream together the butter and sugar. Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing after each. Combine the dry ingredients, alternate mixing into the creamed mix with the milk. Stir in the vanilla. The batter will be very thick.
Put into baking dish – a bundt pan, 2 loaf pans, or a 9×13 (32.5cm x 23cm) cake pan should do. Bake at 350F, 190C (170C for fan ovens) until a toothpick comes out clean (should take no less than 20 minutes and up to 70 minutes, depending). The top will get very crusty and brown before the center is done.
Remove from pan, let cool, and try not to eat it all at once.
This recipe can be halved (fitting a single loaf pan or 9×9 (23cm square) cake pan) with nice results.
Hope you enjoy this tasty cake 😀
