Berry Pound Cake Recipe with Lemon

This Berry Pound Cake Recipe is prepared starting from the classic pound cake with yogurt, the most prepared pound cake of all together with the marbled pound cake. I wanted to start from this base because it’s a moist pound cake recipe, from here I customized the recipe a little to create an equally delicious and light variant.

I added almond flour and grated lime to the soft yogurt Pound Cake recipe. Usually plain or apricot yogurt is used, I opted for a full-bodied lemon Vipiteno yogurt. Finally, I added raspberries and blackberries to the dough, and on the surface, before cooking, I sprinkled it with a generous handful of flaked almonds.

The result was a Berry Pound Cake Recipe that was soft, light, and moist. The berries have released their juice, impregnating the dough, while a tasty crust has been created on the surface with delicious flakes of toasted almonds. Perhaps a pinch of sugar on the surface would have been good, to obtain a glazed and slightly crunchy crust.

Berry Lemon Pound Cake Preparation

First weigh all the ingredients, wash, and dry the berries, sift the starch with the flour and baking powder and start preheating the oven to 190 °C. Don’t forget to butter and flour the pound cake pan.

Sift the almond flour into the other flours that have been sifted. Work the whole eggs with sugar, salt and flavourings, you can do it with a planetary mixer with the whipped whisk, with an electric whisk or by hand. Whisk the eggs until you get a frothy cream. Take the sunflower seed oil and start pouring it slowly while continuing to knead the dough.

Add 1/3 of the flour to the mixture and mix everything well, add the yogurt, stirring constantly. Once all the yogurt is incorporated, continue adding the rest of the flour. Once the mixture is perfectly whipped, add the berries, stirring gently.

Pour the mixture into the pan and sprinkle it with a generous handful of filleted almonds and bake for 30/40 minutes without lowering the oven. In this phase of cooking, our pound cake with berries will rise, creating the classic dome that distinguishes this dessert. Once elapsed, lower the oven to 180 °C and cook for another 15 minutes.

Once cooked, take it out of the oven and let it cool and then remove it from the pan and let it cool on a rack. Serve it once completely cooled!
