The Classic Dessert Ina Garten Calls Her Favorite
By Kuamel Stewart
Pound cake is one of the sweetest you'll find, so it's no wonder that Ina Garten calls it her favorite. She likes to elevate hers by using cream cheese and vanilla bean seeds.
Garten doubles up on the vanilla ingredients in her pound cake with vanilla bean seeds and vanilla extract. She explained in a YouTube video, "Too much vanilla is never enough."
Garten adds that it also has "such a rich texture," which may be due to the addition of turbinado sugar. Finally, she adds a little orange zest to the recipe.
