Pound cake refers to a type of cake traditionally made with a pound of each of four ingredients: flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. This is the way to make a perfect pound cake, but i have not used egg in my pound cake so i don't call it a perfect pound cake. Many people don't prefer egg in their cakes, it is the same case with my hubby also. What ever i bake i keep in my mind to use very less eggs in it. Last night i was just going through some websites there this recipe caught my eyes and i have changed the many ingredient's, but still the result was awesome. The cake was very soft and good to taste... So friends do try this recipe and let know :)
1+1/2cups all purpose flour
1/2cup butter, room temperature
1cup plain yogurt
1tsp vanilla extract
1tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
4tbsp dried black grapes.
Preheat oven at 350F/180C for 10minutes. Grease and flour the mini bread loaf tin.
In a small bowl blend together the, milk, yogurt and vanilla extract.
In another small bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl until it’s light and fluffy. It will take about 5 minutes. To this mixture, add the liquid ingredients in 3 additions, beating well after each addition.
Now combine the dry ingredients and blend well. Stir in the black grapes.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. I made 6 mini pound cake from this batter.
Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack. You will be able to remove the cake from the pan in about 10-15 minutes. Keep the cake on the wire rack and let it cool completely.
