Nicely sweet with a crumbly texture. This is a classic dessert bread and is great with coffee or tea. It’s easy to make and like most batter breads uses baking powder in place of yeast. The Pound cake will rise in the machine as it approaches the end of the baking cycle.

Don’t forget to do the standard batter bread test and insert a wooden skewer into the center of the loaf to make sure it’s done. If the skewer emerges wet from unbaked batter, let it rest in the bread machine for another ten minutes or remove and finish in the oven until it passes the skewer test.

INGREDIENTS:
 3 large eggs, beaten
 1/3 cup milk
 2 cups all purpose flour
 3 tsp. baking powder
 1/2 cup butter, melted
 1 cup sugar
 1 tsp. vanilla
DIRECTIONS:
1

Add the cake ingredients to the bread pan in the order indicated in the recipe or the order specified by your manufacturer.

2

Select the cake setting. Select 1 pound loaf and light crust setting.

      Hi Tammy,

      You can make the batter for a cake bread using a cookie dough or pasta dough setting. If all you have is a basic dough setting, use that but pour out the batter before it goes into the risig cycle. To bake, preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 45 to 60 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the center to test for doneness. If the toothpick emerges wet, bake for another 10 minutes and retest until the toothpick emerges dry.
