20120302 Pound Cake

I have been craving homemade baked goods for days, but finds it difficult to find the time to bake with a 4-week-old baby demanding food every 2 to 4 hours. As the craving got stronger, I decided to make a simple pound cake today. Olivia woke up hungry shortly after I had put the cake into the oven. Thank goodness my parents are visiting, so they helped to remove the cake from the oven while I was breastfeeding. The cake was a beautiful golden brown and tasted really good.

3 eggs
3 tbsp milk (at room temperature)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
185g butter (at room temperature)

1. Heat the oven to 175 degree C. Grease a loaf pan. Line the loaf pan with baking paper, and then spray some oil over the paper.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract.
3. In a big bowl, mix the dry ingredients together. Add butter and half the egg mixture, and mix with an electric mixer until the dry ingredients are moistened.
4. Add half of the remaining egg mixture and mix until combined. Then add the rest of the egg mixture, and mix until well incorporated. Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes.
