Low Fat Pound Cake Recipe

I have just baked this cake and am I thrilled!! Most pound cake recipes ask you to use 200 to 250g of butter for a cup of flour and three eggs… the result would be buttery cake, but would always make me feel super guilty after eating it! But now, I have a guilt free recipe of the pound cake. I have adapted this recipe from the one by Stephanie Jaworski.

You will need:

3 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar or diet sugar
100 g butter (1/2 cup), salted, room temperature
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour or maida
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup milk

– Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line a 9 X 5 X 3 inch baking tin with butter and flour.
– Cream the butter, sugar and eggs till fluffy and light.
– Sieve the flour and the baking powder and keep aside.
– Add the vanilla and the milk to the creamed sugar and mix well.
– Slowly add the flour mix to the creamed mixture and mix well using the cut and fold method.
– Pour the batter into the cake tin and bake for 40 minutes.
– Welcome the aroma of vanilla baking filling up your home and get ready to gorge on the delicious pound cake! It is honestly taking a whole lot of my will power to not eat it all up already!

  1. Pound cake is my favorite. I use it as a base for so many other cakes, and it works so well. I like the crumb on yours. It’s perfect!

    For some reason, mine did NOT work. It is dense and not light in texture.

      Hi Gabbie, Thank you for giving your feedback. A pound cake is usually more dense than a regular yellow cake- because of its higher proportion of fat and sugar to flour. You might want to try adding a little more milk to the batter to make it to a ‘pours out in folds’ consistency, that will give you a lighter cake. I am sure you must have used all the ingredients at room temperature, right?

    Hi excellent blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a great deal of
    work? I’ve virtually no understanding of coding however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I simply had to ask. Cheers!

      Hi Beth,

      Apologies for the delay in responding. Running a blog does require a significant amount of work but you don’t necessarily need coding knowledge. WordPress guides and their own blog is pretty helpful. hope that helped!

  5. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
    get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?


  6. These are actually wonderful ideas in about blogging. You have touched some nice factors here.
