Champagne Pound Cake is as impressive to look at as it is delicious to eat. It’s the perfect is the perfect way to ring in the new year.
Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were just wonderful! Mine were for the most part. I had all of these plans on things I wanted to accomplish. I wanted to come back to blogging with a bang. Well, I am coming back with more like a backfire. At least I’m bringing this Champagne Pound Cake.
On New Year’s Eve, we were going to have another couple over and spend a relatively mellow evening with good food and good company in our home. I made this amazing Champagne Pound cake. It came out perfect. I got my pictures for this post taken and felt like I was totally in control of my time and then wham! My back went out on me.

I am pouting at this point because the swearing phase is over. My husband came home for lunch. He ended up doing my dishes and put away the mess that I had created. He did a great job of not showing how disappointed he must have felt. Doesn’t everyone want to order in pizza for New Year’s Eve? I just love that man.
Well, that’s what we did, and at least we had this amazing cake for dessert. We didn’t open a bottle of champagne to toast in the New Year, but we had this cake with champagne in the batter, in the glaze, and yes, in the frosting. A triple winner cake that tastes elegant but easy enough to make anytime. It is moist with just a hint of champagne.
I recommend mixing this cake, glaze, and frosting by hand. You don’t want to over-mix this cake or it will get tough.
Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!
