Recipe: Honey Vanilla Pound Cake Recipe by Ina Garten of Barefoot Contessa

Honey Vanilla Pound Cake Ina Garten

Recipe: Honey Vanilla Pound Cake Recipe by Ina Garten

226g = 1/2 pound(2 sticks) unsalted butter, at cool room temperature
281g = 1 1/4 cups sugar
5 large eggs = 4 extra large eggs, at room temperature
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
250g = 2 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F / 176°C.
  2. Grease the bottom of an 8½ x 4½ x 2½ inch loaf pan.
  3. Line the bottom with parchment paper, then grease and flour the pan.
  4. Using an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed for 3-4 minutes, until light.
  5. Meanwhile, put the eggs, honey, vanilla and lemon zest in a glass measuring cup but do not combine.
  6. With the mixer on medium low speed, add the egg mixture, one egg at a time, scraping down the bowl and allowing each egg to become incorporated before adding the next egg.
  7. Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  8. With the mixer on low speed, add it slowly to the batter until just combined.
  9. Finish mixing the batter with a rubber spatula and pour it into the prepared pan. Smooth the top.
  10. Bake for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  11. Cool for 15 minutes, turn out onto a baking rack, and cool completely.

Biow's comment: I think the batter should fill 2 loaf pan.. so if baking only 1 loaf pan, I would halved the recipe.

Egg in a Toast

Someone shared this in a forum.. so, i proceed to try it out. It stated to put in a toaster for 6 min. I do not have a toaster. I have an oven. Not sure what temp to set. My bread chao-ta liao, the egg still wobbly. I proceed to nuke it. Hence no more nice bull eye egg. It's actually 2 slices of bread. The top slice, cut out a square. Or someone used some shapes of cookie cutter as well. Put a slice of cheese In between the 2 slices of bread. Though the actual recipe calls for cutting the cheese to 4 stripes to line the 4 edges. Pour in the egg. Toast for 6 min. Sigh, and I'm supposed to watch my weight.. :S
