  • Who said baking has to be complex? Not Betty! This pound cake shockingly only takes two steps and 15 minutes to prepare, making it one of Betty’s easiest pound cake recipes. And the fact that it’s just six ingredients makes the recipe even easier (and — bonus! — minimizes dishes). The most important ingredient in any pound cake is the flour, so don’t be surprised that you need to use a whopping four cups — it needs an ample amount in order to give it that dense consistency. And no matter how easy the recipe, you can always check in on Betty’s best tips for baking cakes.
