Vanilla Bean Pound Cake
12 Tbs. (1½ sticks/185 g) unsalted butter
1 packet pound cake mix (included)
¹∕3 cup (80 ml) milk
Have all the ingredients at room temperature. Preheat an oven to 325°F (165°C). Spray a 4-by-8-inch (10-by-20-cm) loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the flat beater, beat the butter on low speed until creamy, about 30 seconds. Add the cake mix, eggs and milk and beat until blended, about 1 minute. Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Increase the speed to high and beat for 1 minute.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 60 to 65 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto the rack and lift off the pan. Let the cake cool completely. Serves 8 to 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Smorey18 from Corner cake fail? This cake was great! Too bad the corner got stuck on the pan, and we had to bake it for a very long time.Date published: 2019-08-08Rated 5 out of 5 by Susybud from Love this vanilla cake!

I bought this mix to make a cake for my mother's birthday. I followed the directions exactly and it fell apart when I tried to remove it from the cake pan. It tasted good.Date published: 2018-04-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Marlark from Amazingly Delicious Pound Cake... A Winner! I'm planning a graduation party for one of my daughters and plan to have strawberries on pound cake with whipped cream as one of the desserts. So I wanted to make a few different recipes plus this WS pound cake mix in order to have everyone in the family taste them...and wouldn't you know, that while the other two cakes I had recipes for were delicious, the WS pound cake won hands down! My taste testers loved the deep vanilla taste and the texture. It couldn't be easier to make and it is delicious...this will be the one I'll be serving with strawberries and cream at the graduation party!Date published: 2017-03-07
