Christmas Pound Cake Recipe


It seems during the holidays that we are constantly getting asked to bring desserts to parties and gatherings. The following Christmas Pound Cake is perfect because it travels well, can be made ahead, and is buttery and good. It’s also colorful and festive due to the red and green glacé cherries.

This cake is actually better the day after it’s baked and will keep for several days (if it lasts that long) in an airtight container.

16 Servings

1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese

3/4 cup butter, (1 1/2 sticks)
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

2 cups glace cherries, half red and half green
2 tablespoons flour
  1. Place the ricotta cheese in a fine strainer set over a bowl; let sit at least an hour to drain excess liquid.
  2. After the ricotta has drained, preheat oven to 350°.
  3. Spray a standard tube pan (angel food cake pan) with non-stick spray; set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar on high speed until very light.
  5. Beat in the drained ricotta cheese; add the eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  6. Measure the flour, baking powder, and salt into a fine strainer set over the ricotta mixture; shake through and mix on low speed until the flour is well-incorporated.
  7. Toss the glace cherries with the 2 tablespoons flour; carefully fold into the cake batter.
  8. Transfer the batter to the prepared tube pan.
  9. Bake 45 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  10. Cool completely before removing from the pan and slicing.
