Bread Machine Pound Cake

Pound Cake

The Zojirushi bread machine has a cake setting. While I’ve used it to make cornbread, I hadn’t used it to make a cake.  I found this recipe for pound cake and decided that needed to change!

Pound Cake

3 large eggs, beaten
1/3 Cup milk
2 Cups all purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 Cup butter, melted
1 Cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Follow the instructions that came with your bread machine in terms of which ingredients to put in the machine first. Then select the cake setting.  I used the medium crust setting, but next time I’ll try the light setting. 

For those of you with machines featuring a “quick bread” cycle I think this recipe will work with that cycle too.  If anyone tries it can you please post a comment and let us all know how it turned out.

The cake was very good and I’ll be making it again.  Incidentally, I froze the cake that we didn’t eat and that worked great.

    Hi Marsha!!!!!

    Got the pound cake going in my ZO. When it’s completed should I turn it out on rack immediately or let it cool in pan for few minutes? Thanks!

    Hope your enjoying your weekend!

    Oh gosh darn it..just retread directions. I used 3 cups of flour!!!!!!!!!!!

      Darn it. Let me know how it turns out. It might need the assistance of some cherry jam. :-) When I made pound cake I let it cool in the pan for a time before I turned it out.

    Rose beautifully…..a little dry. Sure it would of tasted more buttery if I used 2 cups of flour<silly me).

    Surprisingly my husband likes it…????? He had three slices.

    Gonna try toasting a slice..butter and jam and see how it tastes,

    Marsha when you made the pound cake did it taste buttery?

    Thanks!!!!!

      I’m glad it turned out. :-)

      I’m not remember it tasting particularly buttery. I just remember it being very good and moist. BTW – I did use real butter in the recipe.

    I made this and it was dry and did not have much taste . what could i have done wrong . I followed the ingredients and measured everything to the t .I plan to try it again . Today I am trying the starbucks lemon pound loaf .

    I followed the recipe, but added lemon juice (1/2 a lemon), lemon zest, & a citrus glaze. Can’t wait to see how it tastes!!!

      That does sound good. Be sure to let us all know how it is.

    Mine turned out wonderfully. Very moist, mild flavor. Dense but not dry or heavy. Exactly what we were craving (something to spread the Nutella on). Two changes – 3 tsp of baking powder seemed like a lot, so I only used 2. But I also waited until the Zo beeped to add ingredients before adding the baking powder. Probably unnecessary… but mine seems to have risen about the same as your picture above.

    I also added a dollop (~1/3c) of plain yogurt. That’s just a personal preference, I like a bit of the sour flavor.

    I’m also glad you recommended the light crust setting.

    Overall, worked great. Thanks!

    I’m really late to the party, but I just tried this in my bread machine that does not have a cake setting. I used the quick bread setting on my Oster, and while it turned out a little dry, it was very good! I’ll be making this again!
