Easy Pound Cake using oven toaster

It has been a while since i hadn't post any food recipes - though most of it are pastry goodies that i really enjoy and make those boring times pass by. So here's my first attempt of cooking pound cake using oven toaster. By the way, Pound cake refers to a type of cake that is made up of four ingredients: flour, butter, eggs, and sugar. (Though i added vanilla in my recipe) Now let's see how easy it was.
Here's how:

Pound Cake
  1. Sift flour in a bowl. (I used cake flour but you may also use the all purpose flour)
  2. On a separate bowl, combine egg, butter, sugar and vanilla using an electric mixer on high speed until it is light and fluffy. Gradually add flour and mix on low speed. Do not over mix.
  3. Put lard in the cake pan. This is to avoid the cake from sticking to the pan when it's cooked already.
  4. Cook for 15 mins or so. It's cooked when you insert a toothpick at the center and it comes out clean.
 Coffee Frosting

Mix 1 cup confectioner's sugar, butter and 1 tsp coffee powder.
 *I didn't use the electric mixer to combine so it looks a bit lumpy and the coffee didn't blend so well. Yet, nothing to worry about. It will still taste the same.
Not so bad for a first timer. It tasted nice, almost near to the taste of butter cakes bought at some bakeshops. (Now that's kinda boastful hehe) I was astonished by the texture, it actually looked like a pound cake. Oh well, that's a yummy accomplishment in such a boring day.

Have a slice.. Till next!
