With our second lesson of the Better Baking Academy with Bob’s Red Mill, we’re taking on the humble hero of the baker’s repertoire: the pound cake. Named for its simple original recipe formula of 1 pound each of eggs, sugar, butter, and flour, the pound cake has had a number of delicious updates over the years, with bakers introducing tender cream cheese into the batter and incorporating rich flavors like coconut and bourbon. Our Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake is a perfect blend of classic excellence and sweet modern improvement. We bring on baker Karlee Flores of the blog Olive and Artisan to discuss the best pound cake dos and don’ts. Then Karlee shares some info about must-bakes from her blog, including her Chocolate Zinger-Inspired Mini Cakes.
