Category: Desserts and Cookies


For 8 Person(s)

Pound Cake

11 oz Butter, room temperature, salted
11 oz White sugar, granulated
11 oz Eggs, room temperature
11 oz White flour (I use unfortified, unbleached)
2 oz Maple syrup

Maple Glaze

1 cup Powder sugar, sifted is best
4 Tbsp. Maple syrup
1 Tbsp. Half & half or heavy cream

Maple Pound Cake Directions

    Make the cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, line 9" loaf pan with parchment paper
  2. Start with room temperature ingredients, sift flour, crack open eggs, and measure all ingredients so they all weigh the same.
  3. Blend butter in mixer on medium or high for 2 minutes
  4. Add sugar and blend for 4-5 minutes on medium-high setting - you're adding bubbles and air to batter
  5. SLOWLY add eggs. It should take 3-5 minutes to blend them into the mix. You're creating an emulsion in this process.
  6. Add maple syrup (optional).
  7. Remove from blender and fold in flour. You want the flour to become wet, the dough should be sticky, but you don't want to blend or over-mix.
  8. Pour into parchment lined baking pan, put in oven for 50-70 minutes.
  9. Cake is done when cake has a moist crumb (don't pull out when knife is squeaky clean). Once parchment is cool enough to handle (10 minutes or so) remove from loaf pan and cool on a wire rack.
  10. Cool for about 20 minutes total, then add maple glaze.
  11. Maple Glaze:

  12. Mix powdered sugar, syrup, and dairy together with a whisk until the mixture is smooth and slightly drippy.
  13. Pour over top of warm cake.

Recipe notes

Storage and serving:

Wrap pound cake tightly in plastic, or keep in an airtight container.
I find that over time it gets drier. After the third or fourth day, I'll warm it up in the microwave and eat it with a little warmed butter.

Serve with fresh or cooked pears and some decaf coffee (if you an tolerate it). It is also delicious with milk.
