Tips On Baking Mini Pound Cakes
- If you use pans that are not the size specified above, check sooner than the time given.
- Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick to make sure they are done.
- Pound cakes are generally kept very simple but you can poke holes in with a cake tester and then drizzle a thin icing or a liqueur over them for a simple topping. The flavor of pound cake though needs to come through and not be overwhelmed by toppings so keep it light!
- Pound cakes make an excellent way to serve strawberry shortcake.
- Try some of the variations out there such as pumpkin pound cake or chocolate chip pound cake.
- Try some of the various Bundt pans and be creative in your presentation. Just remember to always check for doneness if using a different sized pan - with a cake tester or a toothpick.
