Here is a rich classic pound cake with the pretty surprise of chopped cherries, a very popular French Pound Cake. There is something tremendously comforting about pound cake. It's dense, buttery, supremely moist and baked perfectly. Some creative liberties have been taken here with the addition of vanilla essence and chopped cherries. Lets come to the recipe...

150 gm / 1&1/2 Cups Cake Flour
150 gm Granulated Regular Sugar
3 Large Eggs
3 tbsp Butter Milk
1&1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Baking Powder
185 gm / 14 tbsp Salted Butter (at room temperature)
3/4 Cup Chopped Cherries

Preheat oven to 350 F / 180 C. Whisk eggs, milk and vanilla extract with a wire whisk. Mix all in together.

Grease a loaf pan and then sprinkle little flour on the inner surface of the pan. Place a piece of parchment paper on the bottom of the loaf pan. Spray with cooking oil.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking powder. Mix with a electric blender for 30 seconds. Add butter and half of the egg mixture in it. Mix in low speed for 30 seconds. Again blend it with electric hand blender for 1 minute on medium speed. Add remaining egg mixture little by little and mix well with the wire whisk. 

Add chopped cherries in it. Fold nicely. 

Pour mixture to loaf pan and bake it for 50-55 minutes, till a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.

Cool it for 15-30 minutes on a wire rack. 

Cut into slices and serve. You may keep it in air-tight container and refrigerate for a week.

This buttery moist sponge cake is very easy to make, absolutely delicious and perfect for afternoon tea. Butter sponge cake relies on beaten eggs to make it light and feather. I love the taste, it is simply awesome!

225 gm Self-Raising-Flour + For Dusting
250 gm Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
4 Eggs
200 gm Butter + For Greasing
50 ml Olive oil

Preheat oven at 180 C / 350 F. Grease an aluminium cake mould with little butter and dust with little flour. Break eggs in a bowl. Add vanilla essence in it. Beat well with electric beater for 10 minutes continuously. Set it aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter, olive oil and sugar together with a electric hand blender for 3 minutes, or till it fluffy.

Add flour into creamed mixture, also add 1/2 of the beaten egg mixture in it. Mix well by using cut and fold method. Add remaining egg mixture and milk in it. Fold very nicely.

Pour mixture into greased cake tin.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the middle springs back when touched or a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove from heat now and let the cake stand for 15 minutes to cool.

Demould and cut into desired pieces and serve. You may store it in air-tight container upto 4 days and refrigerate for a week.
