Usually, cake recipes that are made with oil are softer, moister and more spongy in texture compared to butter cakes that can become a bit hard at times. The science behind this is that oil doesn't change its structure upon refrigeration, unlike the butter. The structure of a cake usually differs based on the fact whether there is oil or butter present in the recipe. This recipe calls for both butter and oil and has an excellent balance of both soft and dense texture. You can use extra virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil in the place of canola oil as a healthy option. This beautiful Pound Cake recipe is a fun cake to make for kids’ birthdays or any occasion.

Making pound cakes is easy with a few simple tricks and tips. Always separate the eggs and yolks. Incorporate the yolks into the batter first. After the remaining ingredients are mixed into the batter, beat the egg whites till frothy and carefully fold into the mixture right before you transfer it into the oven. This will result in a light cake with a crumbly texture like that of a typical pound cake. Pound cakes also yield a wonderful flavor when you use a good quality organic vanilla extract. Nielsen-Massey is a top organic vanilla extract with no additives like sugar or corn syrup.
