Pound Cake

Submitted by Steve L.

The French pound cake or quatre quarts, a variety of pound cake, is made with the same quantity of four ingredients: flour, sugar, butter, and eggs. It is usually baked in a rectangular mold.


250 g flour
250 g sugar
250 g butter
5 eggs
1 pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder


Pre-heat the oven at 160 degrees Celcius.

Mix the soft butter and the eggs together until the mixture is smooth.

Add the eggs, mix until smooth again, and then stirr in the flour, baking powder and salt.

Butter a rectangular mold and bake for about one hour at 160 degrees Celciius (use a sharp knife to check if the cake is completely baked before taking it out of the oven).

You can easily flavour this cake with poppy seeds, or shredded lemon or orange peels (about 2 tsp of either, to include at the end).
