Can you teach me making the pound cake recipes perfectly? How do I bake the Green Tea Pound Cake properly? I have played the online cake games a lot now it is high-time that I get seriously involved in baking the cake perfectly for my sisterâs birthday. Actually I have preheated the oven to 340 degrees and then put oiled loaf pan with batter inside and has kept it trying all the temperatures possible from 30 to 40 mins to more than an hour but every time it was a disaster. I think I have gone wrong with the creaming the butter too. Please help me out.
