Pound Cake Video Transcript:

Hi, Kristy at the Rada kitchen and I would like to introduce you to our three pound cake’s that we offer and I would also like to show you how easy it is to mix it up. It uses ingredients that everybody has, so if you have an unexpected guest you can whip it up real fast.

The three we have are the traditional butter cake, pound cake, it has a rich buttery taste. And then we have the toasted coconut pound cake. That is a great breakfast pound cake and it has the aroma of toasted coconut. It fills your whole kitchen.

And then the tangy lemon pound cake, and this is the one I’ll be mixing up today. All it takes are a stick of melted butter or a half cup, a fourth (1/4) cup water, and two eggs. To the one packet of the Rada quick mix pound cake, and then you add the melted butter. The fourth cup water, and two eggs.

I’m going to use the Rada server spoon. It looks like a spatula but you could use it to stir. You could use it to whip stuff. You just gently mix this in until the eggs are blended in. And then I’m going to pour this in to the Rada stoneware loaf pan.

You don’t have to grease these pans and I like these pans because they keep the pound cake warm longer. And then I’m going to evenly spread that around. We’ll bake that for about 55 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven and you’ll want to let it cool before you slice it.

The lemon pound cake is done baking and it’s cooled, and it’s ready to slice. So to cut this lemon pound cake I’m going to use the six-inch serrated bread knife. You could also use the ten-inch bread knife.

Now this has a yummy, crusty outside but a tender, flaky inside. And the teeth saw through it, it’s like a sawing action and so the knife does all the work for you. And I’m going to use the Rada party spreader to put some butter on it. Mmm! It’s lemony, it’s flaky, and it’s delicious.
