Mini Pound Cake for Two is the perfect sweet treat to share with that special person. It is creamy, buttery, and delicious!
Well, here we meet again on another post with another pound cake.
I have to admit that I really never get tired of some good pound cake…or any kind of cake for that matter. The only problem that I seem to have with cake is that as long as it is in my house, then I feel obligated to eat it until there is not any left. Thus when I make these cakes I have to have some very strong willpower in order to resist the temptation. A way to have some of my cake and not go overboard is to make a smaller version. This recipe will yield just enough pound can that one or two people can enjoy and not even feel the least bit guilty.
Mini Pound Cake for Two Ingredients:
- 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1-ounce cream cheese
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup unbleached (all purpose) flour
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
Before baking a pound cake, Allow all of the ingredients sit until they are room temperature and spray a 5 ¾” x 3” x 2” mini loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
In a medium bowl, beat together the butter, cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer. Beat very well (about 3-5 minutes) until the sugar is fully incorporated and the mixture is pale yellow and fluffy.
Add the egg and vanilla and continue beating.
Add the baking powder and half of the flour, mix, and then add the remaining flour and mix just until combined.
Scrape batter into the pan…
Bake on a cookie sheet for 42-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Feel free to top with a glaze mixture of lemon juice and powdered sugar while hot.
