"One Bowl" Perfect Pound Cake

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Karen..

This is the perfect pound cake recipe...plus so easy to prepare and only one bowl to wash! This is a firm cake, so if you are into cutting and shaping cakes, this works well. I have used it for christening and communion cakes, creating crosses, etc and used buttercream frosting. I have also made it in a 9 x 13 cake pan...just adjust time accordingly. The addition of the yogurt really makes a difference in the taste.

Delicious pound cake! I made this with the intention of using it as a base for other desserts calling for sliced pound cake, but this can stand on its own witha bit of powdered sugar dusted on top. I had no problems preparing this cake. It makes a large cake and is very versatile - you can vary the flavor slightly by using a different flavor of yogurt. I used vanilla this time. It is easy to prepare and turned out great. It is dense yet tastes light. Thanks!
