Dense vanilla bean pound cake that just melts in your mouth. A simple no frills cake packed with so much flavour and is absolutely delicious.
Vanilla Bean adds pizazz to cake and just about anything you put it in. The specks of the bean, the taste, the smell is what i love about vanilla bean. So when I decided to bake a pound cake I knew I had to have vanilla bean in it.
The recipe is quite simple and straightforward. To begin with I creamed the butter, vanilla bean paste and sugar until light and fluffy. You want to incorporate lots of air into the batter.
To add that extra vanilla hit and extra sweetness to a not so sweet vanilla pound cake I made a vanilla bean glaze to drizzle over the pound cake.
I just couldn’t help myself when photographing this cake. Slices of cake disappeared into my mouth. The temptation was too much.
