two step pound cake

This is an easy two step pound cake recipe.  Pound cake is an annual family tradition as a dessert in our family.  We always serve it with Peppermint Stick Ice cream and I have to say it is the highlight of the holiday season!  If you have never tried the combination you MUST.

I highly recommend Swan’s Peppermint Ice Cream as it is my favorite brand, Edy’s also makes a good variety.  Another great idea would be this Fresh Blueberry Sauce/Topping.

This two step pound cake is simply delicious! Perfect for any holiday or celebration

You’ll need a heavy-duty stand mixer with a 4-qt. bowl and paddle attachment for this recipe.

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 6 large eggs

How to Make It

Step 1

Layer Ingredients and Mix. Preheat oven to 325°. Place flour, sugar, butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla (in that order) in 4-qt. bowl of a heavy-duty electric stand mixer. Beat at low speed 1 minute, stopping to scrape down sides. Beat at medium speed 2 minutes.

Step 2

Pour and Bake. Pour into a greased and floured 10-inch (16-cup) tube pan, and smooth. Bake at 325° for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour).
