Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8x4-inch loaf pan. Sift together flour and baking powder.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the sugar and butter. Beat in the egg yolks. Beat in flour mixture. Stir in the vanilla and lemon extracts.
  3. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.

This is definitely a classic pound cake recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and baked it in a 9x5 inch glass baking dish. Mine took 1 hour and 10 minutes with no raw center. It was light, fluffy, and moist. It's perfect for stawberry shortcake and the slices freeze well. Be sure to whip the egg whites until they form stiff white peaks - it makes a difference. I couldn't believe how light and fluffy my pound cake turned out because of it.

This is one of the better basic pound cakes I have had on this site. A lot of complaints about dryness, well if you use butter, beat thoroughly and only beat egg whites until they hold soft peaks it should not be dry. Actually it tastes better after it sits a day. Thanks for submitting.

I love this cake!! this is my first attempt at making pound cake, and I'm happy to say it turned out perfect. I followed the recipe exactly, and yes, the egg whites must be whipped to form soft peaks, don't leave out any of the steps, and you will be happy with the results. I used a Pyrex 8x4 loaf pan, and baking time was 1 hour and 20 minutes, just make sure you test it by inserting a toothpick in the center of the cake, and if it comes out clean then you can be sure the center is not raw. This cake is delicious, thank you for the recipe!!
