Six Perfect Pound Cakes

The simplicity of the pound cake creates an excellent base for numerous variations of the oh-so-delicious heirloom recipe, from a marbled delight to a banana bread blend and everything between. 

Classic Vanilla Pound Cake

You can choose your flavor with this incredibly simple, perfectly sweet pound cake. Go almond, lemon, or vanilla. For bake sales, we bake this cake in Nordic Ware’s Brilliance Bundt Pan with evenly spaced grooves that make for easy portioning when you slice and serve.

Banana Bread-Cream Cheese Pound Cake

This Banana Bread-Cream Cheese Pound Cake is a baking masterpiece. With a little optimization and some Southern charm, the iconic crackled top and moist texture of pound cake can be credited to one tangy and rich all-star addition: cream cheese. We elevated the cream cheese pound cake batter by layering it on top of a lightly spiced brown sugar-banana batter, creating a two-toned masterpiece. A final sprinkling of granulated sugar and cinnamon shows off the gorgeous design of the 75th Anniversary Nordic Ware Bundt Pan.

Roasted Strawberry Pound Cake

Roasting fresh berries concentrates their flavor while also creating a delicious berry juice. The ruby strawberries are folded into rich buttermilk cake batter, and the sweet-tart juice creates a pretty-in-pink glaze for this majestic cake.

Butter Pecan Pound Cake

A buttery pound cake packed with nutty pecans, this Butter Pecan Pound Bundt Cake is the definition of comfort baked from scratch. Sour cream in the batter gives it an extra-tender crumb while brown sugar brings out the warmth and richness of the pecans. We used both finely chopped pecans and pecan pieces to ensure that each bite of cake held a nutty morsel, big or small.

Peanut Butter Cookie Cake

Layers of crunchy peanut butter cookie crumbles are baked within a rich and moist cream cheese pound cake that’s generously topped with creamy peanut butter icing. It’s a peanut lover’s paradise!

French Marble Pound Cake

This beautifully swirled chocolate and vanilla sour cream pound cake topped with crunchy hazelnut ganache is known as gâteau marbré. And you don’t need make two different batters, so it’s as easy to bake as it is pretty.
