No matter how many sweet treats I have at home, the ones at Starbucks always draw me in. The desserts are always sweeter on the other side right?


Plus sweets go so well with a rich, dark cup of coffee. One that goes especially well is the Starbucks Raspberry Swirl Moist Pound Cake Recipe. It’s perfect for an afternoon pick me up.

To recreate that ultra moist pound cake recipe at home I used 4 whole eggs.

Normal people go to Starbucks once a day for coffee. I go for the sweets!  I’m tired of the weird looks, so I decided to create my own version of their Moist Pound Cake Recipeat home. It tastes very similar and is easier to make than it looks!

  1. OMG this looks too good!

  2. I made this poundcake and was totally embarrassed when my guests tried to eat it. Hard as a rock..couldnt slice.. No flavor. This..after following the recipe to the detail of hours picking all the seeds out of the jam. Any idea what went wrong? What could i have left out? Im getting old !!

    • Hi Deedee,
      So sorry to hear that this didn’t turn out for you.

      It’s been a hot minute since I made it myself, but it sounds like the ratio may have been off with your flour. When you measure your flour do you level it off? Also overmixing can make cakes too dense. I mix with a wooden spoon and stop as soon as flour is no longer visible.

      Thanks for sharing your feedback with me.
