One bowl and five ingredients are all that is needed for a classic buttery and dense pound cake.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup salted butter (softened)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Spray a 9x4” loaf pan liberally with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. Place the butter and sugar into a large mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, cream the ingredients together on medium speed for 1 minute, or until smooth. Add the eggs, and continue to beat for a minute more, until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  4. Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl. Beat the mixture on low until it becomes a smooth, thick batter.
  5. Use a rubber spatula to transfer the batter into the loaf pan.
  6. Transfer the pan to the middle rack of the preheated oven.
  7. Bake the cake for 75-85 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  8. Remove the pan from the oven. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes.
  9. To release the cake, run a butter knife between the edge of the cake and the pan. Turn the cake onto a large plate.
  10. Allow the cake to cool for 1-2 hours before slicing and serving.
