Simple Everyday Cake

Let me first tell you that I looooove this cake.... not because it's fancy but because: it's simple, tastes good, requires not a lot of time and toasts very well. Just my kind of everyday cake. :) See the toasted slices below? The slices almost taste like those toasted muffins sold at the grocery stores here in Davao. I am such a fan of those toasted muffins or toasted mamon as we call it, every time we make a short stop at the convenience store closest to our residence, we always buy those toasted mamon cause the taste is great and the texture is divine.

Anyways, my big baby loves the cake as is so I toast a few slices only for my consumption. This cake toasts very well because it is dense like a pound cake. Actually, it is almost like a pound cake, but the vegetable oil I included makes a more open crumb.

But for the purposes of this post, I'll just refer this cake as pound cake since the term "simple everyday cake" is such a mouthful. I hope you'd understand. :) Oh, may I just add, if you have unexpected guests and by chance have this pound cake sitting in your kitchen, you can definitely serve them coffee with this simple cake on the side. Hindi kayo mapapahiya. Promise! :)

1. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

2. Cream butter and oil using an electric mixer.

3. Add sugar and mix until fluffy.

4. Beat in eggs one at a time, mix well. Add vanilla and langka extract and mix until incorporated.

5. Divide flour into three. Add a third of the flour then mix.

6. Add half of the water then mix. Add a third of the flour again, mix, then the remaining water and mix.

7. Add the final third of the flour and mix until everything is fully incorporated producing a smooth batter. Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 50 to 60 minutes until a bamboo skewer comes out clean when inserted.

By the way, if you don't have a tube pan, you may use my tube pan alternative. :) But you can definitely use a cake pan if you wish, although expect the center to sag as the pound cake cools down.

8. Allow the pound cake to cool before removing from pan. Slice, serve and enjoy! :)

Toasting your Pound Cake

If like me you also love toasted cakes, this pound cake toasts very well. Slice about 3/8" to 1/2" thick. Arrange in a cookie sheet sides flat. I used the wire rack of my oven toaster so I won't have to turn the slices over to expose the other side. Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 10 minutes then change to grill/broil function and leave the pound cake slices for 10 more minutes. You can reduce time if you don't want it to be really crisp. Enjoy! :)
