“Loaf Cake Recipe”
For a good Loaf Cake Recipe we look to the classic pound cake. Why is it called a pound cake? Simple, it contains a pound of butter. So its not a low calorie, no sugar option, but a good loaf cake recipe it is.
Most loaf cake recipes will call for the creaming method of whipping together the ingredients. For this recipe we decided to do a combination of creaming and then folding to inhibit the gluten development so that this loaf cake recipe would rise a little higher and have a little more tender texture.
Here is the basic loaf cake recipe: loaf cake recipe
Want to try a variation to the basic loaf cake recipe? Add a tablespoon of Orange zest or Orange extract (if using extract only use 2 teaspoons)
