To-Die-For Buttermilk Pound Cake

How to Keep a Bundt Cake From Sticking to the Pan

    1. If your bundt cake pan isn’t properly greased with butter or cooking spray, the edges and lines on it might make it hard for you to remove your cake.

    2. Every edge has to be well greased before adding your flour, and spreading it out to cover every inch. To get rid of any extra flour, carefully tap the pan on your counter, and empty it out.

    3. Cook the batter in your pan following the directions on the recipe. It will be easy to remove your cake from the pan once it’s fully cooked.

    4. After taking it out of the oven, let your bundt cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Flip it upside down on your cooling rack, it should easily release that way.

Can Milk Be Substituted for Buttermilk in This Recipe?

You cannot use plain milk instead of buttermilk for this recipe.

If you want to replace buttermilk with milk, mix it with a teaspoon of lemon and leave it for 5 minutes.

You can now use this instead of buttermilk in your vanilla buttermilk pound cake.

Yield: 12
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

This vanilla buttermilk pound cake will have you in a chokehold once you try it, and will instantly become your go-to. In an hour and half, you'll have your cake baked and ready!

Ingredients

  • 3 sifted cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup or 2 sticks of butter
  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Turn on your oven to 325 F. Take your bundt cake pan, grease and flour it. To get rid of any extra flour, carefully tap the pan on your counter, and empty it out.
  2. Mix 3 cups of flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Combine your sugar and butter in a stand mixer. Slowly pour in your vanilla extract and eggs. Cream on medium to high speed for 4 minutes.
  4. Little my little, add a cup of your flour mix, then a bit of buttermilk, rotating like so, until everything is combined.
  5. In your bundt cake pan, transfer the cake batter. And make sure it's smooth on the top using a rubber spatula.
  6. Place it in the center rack of your hot oven and let cook. It's best if you don't open the oven door until the cooking hour has passed. You know your bundt cake is done when it starts unsticking itself from the edges of the pan.
  7. Put it down for 10 minutes to cool, then flip it into a cooling rack. In case it refuses to slip from the pan, pat the sides and bottom of it.
  8. You can eat it straight away, or leave it at room temperature in a sealed container for 3 days.
