Pound Cake Recipe For The Learner

Also known as Nigerian cake

Easy pound cake well baked.

How to bake Nigerian cake:

This no stress pound cake recipe is especially for the learner who thinks that baking is difficult. This recipe doesn't ask that you mix anything separately before adding. All you have to do is measure and pour in a large bowl. Preparation takes less than 10  minutes and your cake is put in the oven. All you need is a stand mixer because the weight is going to be much for manual mixing.

4 cups all purpose flour (500 grams)
2 cups sugar (500 grams)
2 cups butter ( I used 2 sachets baking margarine) (500 grams)
6 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla essence

  1. Layer all the ingredients in a bowl, start with the flour, sugar, butter, eggs and finally vanilla. 
  2. Slowly mix with a stand mixer for 1 minute, stop to scrape down the ones splashed on the sides then increase the speed and mix for two more minutes.
  3. Pour into a greased bread pan, smooth the top and bake in a pre-heated oven for 45 minutes or until tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool for 10 minutes, remove from pan and let it cool completely, then cut and enjoy with friends and family!
  5. Happy Baking!

Happy weekend!
