After a crazy 2 months, I'm back with new recipes for you guys!
This sweet pound cake is easy to make and the condensed milk gives it a caramel-y taste that makes it impossible to stop eating.
Keep reading to see how you can make this pound cake (and save the extra condensed milk for next week's recipe).
1 1/3 cup Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1/2 cup sugar
3 large eggs
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
WHAT YOU NEED:
9x5 loaf pan
Stand mixer with paddle attachment or large mixing bowl with electric mixer
TO MAKE THE POUND CAKE:
Preheat the oven to 325º
Prepare your loaf tin - I lined mine with parchment paper but you can use cooking spray or butter and flour
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl
In the stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar on high until light and fluffy (roughly 2 minutes)
Turn the mixer on the lowest speed and add the eggs one at a time, making sure to mix eggs completely before adding the next.
Add the sweetened condensed milk and both extracts, then mix to combine
Turn the mixer on low and add the flour mixture. Make sure you're scraping down the bowl occasionally
Pour the batter into your loaf pan
Bake for 60 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean
Set the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes before taking the loaf out to cool completely
TIPS & TRICKS:
You may want to add a tablespoon of the measured flour with each egg to prevent the mix from splitting. My mixture split, but I went ahead and baked it anyway "just to see" and it was fine!
Lining the pan with parchment paper makes it easy to take the cake out of the pan. Be sure to have long enough sides to grab.
I hope you try this because this cake was amazing! This will make your house smell fantastic, too!
