Slice of Solar by the Pound…Cake That Is.
If you like pound cake, try this recipe in your solar oven. It’s quick and easy to make. Most folks have the ingredients handy for this cake. It comes out so moist and is a treat with tea or coffee. Numerous glazes from honey and rum to a cinnamon sprinkle or icing are used. I like mine with coating of peanut butter (even if my wife thinks I’m nuts).
1 2/3 cups of sugar
5 large eggs
1 cup of butter, melted (or margarine)
1 tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
Use a small loaf pan and coat it with butter (margarine or PAM) and then with a dusting of flour. Preheat the solar oven.
First, whisk together the eggs into the melted butter in a medium mixing bowl. Then, slowly add in the flour, salt and sugar. Mix thoroughly until you have a smooth shiny batter.
Pour into your cake pan and place into the solar oven uncovered.
With good sunshine, and an oven temperature over 200 degrees, this will be ready in about three hours. Test with a toothpick in the middle to make sure it’s done. Remove from the sport oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes before preparing to slice and serve.
It’s like a pound of sunshine! It’s so sweet and makes you feel good.
