Two egg Vanilla Pound Cake



Pound cake recipes always calls for sooooo many eggs which makes it so heavy.Though rich and tasty,I always hesitate to bake one fearing the amount of  fat .
But I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe featured in About.com which uses only 2 eggs for pound cake baked in loaf pan.
It was moist,soft and delicious.

Ingredients:


All purpose flour - 2 cups sifted

Baking powder - 3/4 tsp

Salt - 1/4 tsp

Sugar -1 1/2 cup

Butter - 2/3 cup softened at room temperature.

Eggs at room temperature - 2

Whole milk - 2/3 cup

Vanilla essence - 1tsp

Method:


Line a loaf pan with parchment paper(It makes cleaning easier) .Alternately grease the pan with melted butter and sprinkle some flour.Preheat the oven to 325 deg F

In a medium bowl cream the butter with sugar until fluffy.Add eggs one at a time and beat well.


In anothe bowl,sift the flour,baking powder and salt.


Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.Add milk little by little and mix gently.Finally add the vanilla essence and mix.

Pour the mixture into the loaf pan.

Bake for about 1  1/4 hrs to 1 1/2 hrs.Start checking your cake after 1 hour.Mine took about 1 hour 20 minutes.



Test the cake by inserting a toothpick in the middle.If it comes out clean,then cake is ready.
