The Quatre-quart cake is an exemplary French cake and is otherwise also known as a pound cake in different regions.

It’s a basic cake that can be devoured plain, yet you can include fruits such as diced pears, vanilla extract, lemon pizzazz, and even some extract of an orange flower for boosting its taste. In any case, most people happen to like it plain!

This quatre-quarts cake formula makes a delicate loaf, and exhibits little, soaked crumbs that are held together pleasantly for simple cutting and serving.

Here is a recipe that is the great adaptation of French pound cake, utilizing just a touch of vanilla for flavor.

Don’t hesitate to sprinkle nuts and dried fruits into the dough for your very own signature cake formula. This classic quatre-quarts cake recipe makes 10 servings.

Health Benefits

The bad news is quatre-quarts cake is high in calories and saturated fat. The good news is you can use canola oil in place of butter to drastically reduce the amount of fat and calories in pound cake. Be sure to add a vanilla bean to the oil as it is tasteless on its own.

Trivia

  • In French it is called "Quatre-quarts" ("4 fourths"), mirroring the way each of the 4 ingredients are utilized in equal quantity.
  • It is trusted that the pound cake is a northern European recipe that goes back to the mid-1700s. A formula for pound cake is in the main American cookbook, American Cookery, which was distributed in 1796.

After some time, the elements for pound cake changed. Eliza Leslie, who composed the 1851 release of Direction for Cookery, utilized 10 eggs, whipped as softly as could be allowed, blended them with a pound of flour, and included the juice of two lemons or three oranges.
