One of my favorite pound cakes has to be whipping cream pound cake. I’m a sucker for that moist, tender, velvety texture although some would argue that this is the very thing that disqualifies it from being a true pound cake.

I love this cake warm from the oven. Even better the next day!

Never had a whipping cream pound cake before? Chances are you may have and probably just thought it was a really moist and light classic poundcake. It’s pretty much made the same way as a poundcake with the same basic ingredients but with heavy whipping cream instead of milk. The heavy  whipping cream creates a very light, soft, tight crumb and makes the cake really moist.

This cake is sweet, no glaze needed.

The taste is pretty much like a classic pound cake as well, depending on the extracts you use. I always go with vanilla & almond extract  or vanilla and butter extract with a bit of lemon extract. If you’re feeling creative I’ve read (never tried) that you can replace half of the heavy whipping cream with flavored coffee creamer. I plan on trying this in the fall time when all of those yummy limited-time flavored coffee creamers come out. I’ll report back.

Can you see that velvety texture?

I actually prefer to use slices of whipping cream poundcake for my strawberry shortcakes over sponge cake.
