The Recipe How-To

 Perfect for all coffee lovers
Perfect for all coffee lovers

Step 1: Combine the dry ingredients.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and ½ teaspoon of salt. Set aside.

Step 2: Mix the wet ingredients.
In another mixing bowl, cream 1 cup of unsalted butter, using an electric mixer on medium speed for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add 1 ½ cups granulated sugar to the creamed butter and beat for another 2-3 minutes until well combined.

In the same bowl, add 3 large eggs, one at a time, making sure each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Then add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and continue to beat until everything is well combined.

Step 3: Add in coffee flavors.
Dissolve 1 tablespoon of instant coffee granules in one tablespoon of boiling water, then add it to the wet mixture and continue to mix.

Step 4: Mix together dry and wet ingredients.
Add half of the dry mixture to the wet mixture and fold gently using a spatula. Add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, and mix until just combined. Then add in the remaining flour mixture, make sure it is properly mixed together.

Step 5: Bake to perfection.
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) for about 10 minutes, then put batter into a greased and floured loaf pan or bundt pan. Tap gently on the counter to release any air bubbles trapped in the batter.

Bake for about 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let it cool in pan for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Now your luscious and moist Whipped Cream Coffee Pound Cake is ready.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

The amazing thing about this whipped cream coffee pound cake recipe is that you can make it ahead of time and store it for a few days. To do so, let the cake cool completely after baking, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and store it in the fridge for no longer than 3 days. When ready to serve, take it out of the fridge 30 minutes before slicing it.

If you want to freeze the cake, that’s possible too! Again, let the cake cool completely after baking, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and store it in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month. To thaw, take it out of the freezer and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Once thawed, you can reheat individual slices in the microwave or oven at a low temperature until warm.

For reheating leftovers, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Wrap the cake slices in aluminum foil and bake them on a baking sheet for about 5-10 minutes until they’re heated through. If you prefer to microwave your pound cake slices, heat them on medium power for around 15-20 seconds each until they’re slightly warm.

Remember that once whipped cream is added to a recipe, it tends to lose its texture quickly once reheated. Therefore, I highly recommend topping this pound cake with fresh whipped cream only when serving and not reheating it with whipped cream on top.

With these storing and reheating tips, you’ll be able to enjoy this delicious whipped cream coffee pound cake recipe any time you want!

Tips for Perfect Results

When making a Whipped Cream Coffee Pound Cake, there are a few tips and tricks to ensure perfect results. This cake is delicate and delicious, and with the right techniques, it can be the centerpiece of any occasion. Here are some tips to help you achieve the best results possible:

1. Soften butter to room temperature: To properly cream the butter with sugar, it should be soft enough to spread easily, but not melted. Leave your butter out at room temperature for about 30 minutes before beginning the recipe.

2. Use fresh coffee: The coffee flavor in this cake is paramount, and using fresh coffee will elevate its taste. Brew a fresh pot of coffee or use instant coffee powder for optimal results.

3. Beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form: Make sure that your heavy cream is very cold before you begin whipping it. Beat until stiff peaks form to ensure that your whipped cream is fluffy and light.

4. Measure flour properly: Too much flour can make your cake dense and dry. Use a kitchen scale to measure flour accurately or spoon flour into measuring cups and level off.

5. Don’t overmix the batter: Over-mixing will cause air bubbles to disappear, creating a denser cake. Mix only until all ingredients are combined.

6. Bake at low temperature: The long baking time at low temperatures helps cook the cake thoroughly without drying it out or over-browning it.

7. Cool before serving: Let your Whipped Cream Coffee Pound Cake cool completely before serving or decorating. This will allow the flavors to meld together, making for a more delicious and moist cake.
