Classic Vanilla or Chocolate Pound Cake

Use our Vanilla Cake Mix or Chocolate Cake Mix (or even our Gluten-Free Vanilla!) to make a classic vanilla pound cake. (If you're looking for variety, check out our Chocolate Marbled Pound Cake!)

Classic Pound Cake

Makes 1 Loaf Cake
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 1 hr 15 mins to 1 hr 20 mins

2 sticks/ 16 Tbsp unsalted butter, at room temp
1 pkg Poppikit Vanilla Cake Mix or Chocolate Cake Mix
4 large eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on 2 sides. 
  2. Place butter in a large bowl, and add cake mix and eggs. Using electric beaters, beat until the mixture is smooth, about 2 mins. 
  3. Evenly spread batter in prepared loaf pan. Bake until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean. For vanilla: about 1 hour and 15 mins for an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-in. pan, or 55 to 60 mins for a 9 x 5-in. pan. For chocolate: about 1 hour 20 mins for an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-in. pan, or 60 to 65 mins for a 9 x 5-in. pan.
  4. Transfer loaf pan to a wire rack and let cool for at least 10 minutes before using the parchment overhangs to remove the cake to the wire rack to cool completely. 


  • Only have 3 eggs? Add 1/2 cup milk to replace the fourth egg - the cake won't rise as much but it will be super tender and moist. 
  • No butter? Use 1 cup oil instead.
