  1. Is it really 1 1/2 cups cornstarch??

    1. Author

      Yes, that is NOT a typo. It is 1-1/2 cups of cornstarch. That is what makes the German pound cake different than the American version. Don’t worry it is very good.

      1. Wonderful cake thank you..the family loved it … this time I will use golden raisins (instead of the chocolate chips) soaked in something made of alcohol šŸ˜‰

  2. I made this German Pound Cake !
    It was so scrumptious!
    I added extra mini chocolate chips as suggested and WOW!
    My friends enjoyed it very much loved the texture.
    I will be making this cake again!
    My family is known for pound cake and I can’t wait to share this cake !

      I am so glad you liked it. I know the large amount of cornstarch scares people away but it is delicious once you give it a chance!

  3. Can i use Splenda instead of regular sugar???

      Good question. I don’t bake or cook with artificial sweeteners so I can’t tell you a definite yes or no. My suggestion would be to test it by making a smaller cake with only Splenda and see if it works. If you do, let me know how it turns out!

  4. I am so happy that I found this recipe! I am going to try it for sure! I lived in Ashaffenburg for a year. l loved it! I am mostly exited to see your interest of homesteading and such! I can’t wait to check out all of your links and other post.

      Welcome. So glad you found us. I have family in Bamberg, Germany and use to spend my summers there. My heart is in Germany! Let me know what you think of this cake!

  5. Is the white sugar powered sugar?

    1. Author

      It refers to white granulated sugar. But you can use powdered sugar if that is what you have since powder sugar is granulated sugar ground into a fine powder.

  6. This sounds great, I’d like to make it with blueberries, will they work with this recipe?

  7. Is the FOUR sticks of butter correct? That is 2 cups of butter.
