Strawberry Pound Cake
- 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 3 cups granulated sugar
- 6 large eggs
- 3 cups cake flour
- 1/4 teaspoon table salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Set the EGG for indirect cooking at 325°F/177°C.
- To make the pound cake, in a large bowl using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar for 3 to 5 minutes. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, with the mixer on low. Blend until the eggs are completely incorporated. Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl. With the mixer on low, add the yogurt and the flour mixture, alternately, until both are completely incorporated. Add the vanilla and continue mixing for 1 second.
- Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and place on the cooking grid. Close the lid of the EGG and bake for 1 hour, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
- To assemble, place a slice of cake on each plate. Top with the macerated strawberries and raspberries, spoon the coulis over the berries, and top with the whipped cream.
