Easy Cakes With The Holstein Pound Cake Maker {Giveaway}

(Disclosure: I received the pound cake maker to review but all thoughts are my own.)

Cake w/ strawberry topping

It gets so hot in the summer that turning the oven on is the last thing I want to do. Thankfully, I discovered the Holstein Pound Cake Maker which is a handy little portable machine that makes baking cakes quick and easy.

The maker comes with a booklet of recipes which I didn’t have much luck with but I learned that I could use box mixes which was easier to do and tasted better. I used a fun confetti mix left over from the 4th of July. The mix took only a few minutes to put together and just about 7 minutes in the pound cake maker. There is no timer on the maker so I used my microwave timer to time it. The boxed mix made 5 pound cake “loaves”.

Pound cake cooling off

Sinisa made a topping for the pound cake instead of using frosting. He mixed cool whip and strawberry syrup together to make it. We then added strawberries and blueberries for a fun summer treat.

Pound cake dessert

Overall I enjoyed using the pound cake maker and liked how easy it was to make cake. When not in use it can be tucked away in the cabinet which saves precious counter space in my kitchen. You can make any flavor cake you’d like. I think next time I am going to try carrot cake.
