Sweet Melissa Sundays: Perfect Pound Cake

September 13, 2009 — 18 Comments


This week’s delicious SMS recipe for Perfect Pound Cake was chosen by Michele of Veggie Nums Nums. If you’d like the recipe, she has graciously posted it–along with all of the notes from the cookbook–on her blog!

I really enjoyed making this lovely pound cake. I like fancy recipes, but life’s current hectic-ness makes me appreciate recipes that call for normal ingredients, come together quickly, and taste wonderful. Melissa Murphy’s pound cake recipe definitely fits the bill in every way. My only regret is that I didn’t really get to have any! I made it for a baby shower, but my husband had to work late that day. So the cake hitched a ride with a friend, and I only got to eat the ends! Poo! I hope everyone liked it. I haven’t had any phone calls thanking me for the most delicious pound cake ever, but no one has thrown eggs at my house either, so I think it was at least passable!

  1. The pound cake looks gorgeous with all of the colorful fresh fruit surrounding it! Bummer you didn’t get to eat much of it – you’ll have to make it again soon so you can decide if it is indeed perfect šŸ™‚

  2. I love how you plated the cake with the berries, so pretty; I found it hard to photograph since it’s so pale! Sorry you didn’t get to try more (the ends are not the best part of a pound cake), I’m sure your friends enjoyed it.

  3. Beautiful presentation. Too bad you didn’t get to taste any. Gives you a good excuse to make it again :o) I made mine espresso-marbled. Turned out pretty good, and I don’t even like/drink coffee.
