Sweetness by the Pound: A Pound Cake Recipe from Street Treats


CakeSpy Note: Street Treats, a mobile dessert truck in Seattle, recently sent this interesting story and recipe via their newsletter--very fun to see the process behind their recipe development! This was written by the Street Treats team:

We are often asked: How do you find recipes? We are constantly coming up with ideas and testing. We search for recipes from a variety of sources. We make those recipes as written. Then, 99.9% of the time, we make many modifications to the original recipe to decide on the perfect taste.

Recently, we had some of our wholesale clients asking for quick breads or pound cake. I found this pound cake recipe from my grandmother. My grandmother was a great cook! I can still smell her cooking as I write this. She had a real sweet tooth, like myself.

 Nana's pound cake recipe


  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1 t lemon rind *optional
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 cup margarine *butter is best
  • 8 oz pineapple or mandarin yogurt or sour cream
  • 3 eggs


Combine all ingredients blend on low speed, then on medium speed for three minutes.  Pour into 12 cup bundt pan or tube pan. 325 degrees for 60-70 minutes.

Nana and I would have gotten along just fine. This cake sounds really good. I'm going to give it a try and I'll tell everyone it's Nana's Pound Cake. :)
