Condensed Milk Almond Pound Cake

Saturday, November 1, 2014
No matter what your preference is, plain pound cake, topped with fruit, or just dusted with powdered sugar, this is a delightful easy pound cake that will make the entire house smell amazing while baking.

Using sweetened condensed milk makes this cake moist and tender, and delicious just as it is.






Pound cakes often have cracked tops because the batter is so dense.

The exterior of the cake cooks first, which can cause the batter to rise up and crack in the center.

How to prevent a crack: use a bundt pan, angel food cake pan, or a spring pan that has a removable tube in the center.

Pound cake unlike other cakes is supposed to crack on top so don't worry about it, if it does bother you, then use a different pan with a hole in the center.


Condensed Milk Pound Cake

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
3 eggs
1/2 cup toasted almonds
2 sticks of unsalted butter at room temperature


Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar for 3 minutes. Add both extracts the milk, eggs. Add the flour and almonds last a little at a time and blend evenly together. Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake at 325 degrees preheated oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the middle is clean using the toothpick.

Enjoy using various fresh fruits and whipped cream or leave plain dusted with powdered sugar.
