Easy Standard Pound Cake Recipe - Add Your Own Fruit!
Note: this is a terrible bake - my blackberries sunk to the bottom. How to prevent this? Shake your fruit in a little bit of flour! Now I know *wink*. And then because of this, the cake stuck to the bottom of the pan - sticky fruit will do that! So shake the fruit in flour and your cake will be much prettier!
1.5 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbs baking powder
1 stick butter (8 tbs or 1/2 cup) softened
1.25 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup greek full fat yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups of your favorite fruit (as chunky or as diced as you want!) - you could probably add choc chips or pb chips too - or nuts - or anything really!
Preheat oven to 325°
Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl and set aside.
Cream the butter, sugar, and eggs with a mixer.
Add flour mix, milk, yogurt, and vanilla extract and mix well with mixer.
Gently fold in your fruit.
Pour in a 9x5 bread pan sprayed with coking oil.
Bake for 1 hour or until center is done.
Boom! A basic pound cake that is EASY, YUMMY, and so VERSATILE!
