This is one of my favourite cakes ever! …. Pound Cake! Not like the average cake, Pound cake has a lovely light and fluffy texture and a sweet taste. Very easy to make!

Pound Cake


  • 4 free range eggs
  • 250g margarine/ soft butter
  • 250g self raising flour, sifted
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/ Gas 4/ 350F, and grease baking tin
  2. Cream the butter and caster sugar, and then add eggs one at time mixing thoroughly before adding the next egg.
  3. Mix in the flour and cinnamon, and mix until no lumps and nice and creamy.
  4. Spoon into baking tin and bake for 45- 50 minutes or until a skewer poked into the centre comes out clean.
  5. Cool for ten minuted before removing from tin and turning out onto a cooling rack, to cool completely.

Serve on it’s own or with a nice cup of tea…

I originally got the recipe from here, but I slightly changed it.
