Extra moist and crumbly pound cake with a sweet butter glaze and dusted with powdered sugar. A deliciously addictive bundt cake that's perfect for all holidays!
Pound Cake ‣ 3 cup all-purpose flour ‣ 1 teaspoon salt ‣ 1 teaspoon baking powder ‣ 1/2 teaspoon baking soda ‣ 2 cup granulated sugar ‣ 1 cup salted butter, softened and cut into cubes ‣ 4 egg ‣ 1 cup buttermilk ‣ 1 tablespoon vanilla extract ‣ 1 tablespoon powdered sugar, for topping (optional) Butter Glaze ‣ 1/3 cup unsalted butter ‣ 3/4 cup granulated sugar ‣ 2 tablespoon water ‣ 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
In lage bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), cream together the sugar and butter until nice and fluffy.
Turn off the mixer and toss in the prepared dry ingredients, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Turn the mixer back on and mix right up until the ingredients look incorporated.
Grease a 10-inch bundt cake pan and pour in the cake batter. Once finished, set it in the oven to bake!
Once the cake is baked and cooling, prepare the butter glaze by melting butter in a small saucepan. Once melted, add the sugar, water, and vanilla, then heat and whisk until the butter is dissolved.
Use a long skewer to poke holes in the bottom of the bundt cake, then pour the butter glaze on top. Lift and tilt the cake as needed to get the glaze in the holes and along the sides of the pan.
