Whipped Cream Pound Cake

What is a girl to make when she has some left over double cream in the fridge? Well this girl knew exactly what to make! If you’ve never tried a cake made with whipped cream instead of butter, you are missing a special treat. This pound cake is made without butter and instead a pint of cream which is whipped and folded into the batter. You might think it sounds really rich but it contains only half the fat and calories a normal pound cake would. What I love about this cake is the finished texture, light and fluffy and really creamy. The first time I made this cake my hubby kept creeping into the kitchen and cutting himself slice after slice, now his not usually a greedy person but he really loved this cake and said it was unlike any other cake he had tried, so I think it’s safe to say that this cake is a winner and one I will be making again and again!
