Pound cake with redcurrant

A simple pound cake with redcurrant is a great way to combine soft fruit with cake batter. I make this redcurrant cake with butter, but you can also make it with margarine. The batter made with butter has a more delicate taste. I start the preparation of the pound cake batter by rubbing the soft butter with powdered sugar and a pinch of salt. The well mixed ingredients should have a creamy consistency, and the whole mass should be almost white. Next, I add eggs to the creamy ingredients, not all at once, but one at a time, while mixing constantly. At the end, I add cake flour mixed with baking powder, orange peel, and then I pour in milk.

After that, I line a baking tin with parchment paper, although you can also grease the tin with margarine and sprinkle it with breadcrumbs. Then I pour the cake batter into it, on top of which I arrange the redcurrant fruit. I bake the cake in an oven preheated to 180 degrees Celsius for over 40 minutes, cool it down and sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving. This pound cake is fantastic when served for dessert. As befits this cake, it is easy and quick to prepare. I encourage you to check the following recipe for pound cake with redcurrant and I wish you a tasty meal.
