Cake Cake Cake Cake!!

Hope everyone is enjoying the new season. To kick off fall I’m adding to my baking repertoire. One of my favorite sweets is pound cake so that’s my focus through the end of the year. I baked Chef Art Smith’s lemon-sour cream version and it got good reviews. It was a beautiful cake and I look forward to making it again soon. I didn’t quite get the lemon syrup right – too tired and distracted from a busy day – but I will try it again. So instead of the lemon syrup I covered it with a lemon glaze courtesy of Ms. Martha Stewart’s web site.


The adventure begins with having the right tools. Wilton makes quality baking pans so I set out to find mine at A.C. Moore. After a round of discussion with favorite-college-roomie Emily I printed the online coupon (50% off), headed to A.C. Moore and scored my first bundt pan.

If you try this recipe make sure you take your time preparing the pan. Those grooves need butter and flour to keep the cake from sticking. I used the wrappers from the sticks of butter after I put them in the large bowl. You can have that little technique tip for free.

First Pound Cake

The cake smelled delicious and I was transported to childhood. My grandma Frances used to bake for us and we weren’t allowed to come in the kitchen for fear of making the cake fall. So I was in my apartment tipping around slowly and hoping for the best.
I had a touch of anxiety waiting for the cake to cool. Would my cake make the cut? Should I have used Baker’s Joy?

The result was beautiful and tasted good too!!
