Easter Peek-a-Boo Pound Cake
With this Easter Peek-a-Boo Pound Cake, everyone will be asking, “How did you do that?” Get ready to impress at your Easter parties this year with this easy-to-make, yet extraordinary cake.
I have to admit I’ve struggled with pound cake for a long time. It never worked right. The texture was always coarse and the whole cake was heavier than it should be.
Then one day I realized that we are located in a high altitude city. Ogden Utah sits at nearly 4,300 feet. It is recommended that at 3,500 feet you adjust your recipes to compensate for the lower air pressure.
So, I set out to find a recipe for pound cake that would work at high altitudes. I found one and tried it. To my utter amazement, I had finally baked a pound cake that had a consistent small crumb texture and didn’t feel like it weighed a ton.
If you live above 3,500 feet, try this recipe. If you live at a lower altitude, you may want to just stick with your trusty pound cake recipe, but follow the directions for making the peek-a-boo cake below.
