Instructions

For the Pound Cake:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the whole wheat pastry flour, starch, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  • Dump the dry ingredients into the stand mixer bowl and mix until ALMOST combined.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix one more time, JUST until the batter is even.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for ~55 minutes, or until the surface forms a brown crust and springs back when tapped.
