Utah’s hidden gem. The pound cake is incredible and completely reminds me of fall with every bite. Using sparkling apple cider in the batter and the glaze gives it a delicious and unique flavor.
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sparkling apple cider
For the Glaze:
3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
3 to 4 teaspoons sparkling apple cider
Preheat oven to 350°. Line bottom of a greased 9×5-in. loaf pan with parchment paper; grease paper.
In a bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with cider, beating well after each addition.
Transfer to prepared pan. Bake 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
In a small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth; spoon over top of cake, allowing it to flow over sides.
