This kitchen sink pound cake will be your next favorite recipe
You know those monster cookies with like every ingredient under the sun in them? Well, what if that was in pound cake form? That is exactly what Delish has come up with and it involves much more than just throwing in some M&Ms and chocolate chips. This kitchen sink pound cake is all your favorite foods in one with both salty and sweet flavors.
The first step when making this glorious creation is to preheat your oven to 325º and prepare a loaf pan by coating the inside with butter. Once that’s done, start mixing together the flour, oats, salt, and baking powder. Besides the oats, this is pretty standard for most baking recipes.
Next, get out your electric mixer (or a spoon and some elbow grease)! Beat together the butter and sugar until they are fluffy and then mix in the vanilla. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix after each one
I know you don’t actually do this, but it is important. You know how when you make a salad dressing, you pour the oil into the vinegar really slowly so it combines? This is the same principle. Because you’re adding fat (the eggs) into another mixture, it’s best to mix it in slowly so it doesn’t separate.
Kitchen sink pound cake includes potato chips, pretzels, and so much more.
Next step! Add in the flour/oat mixture and mix until it’s combined. Don’t overmix! We want cake; not bread. Finally, add in all the fun ingredients, including the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, pretzels, and potato chips. This isn’t called a kitchen sink pound cake for nothing.
Pour all the batter into your prepared loaf pan, bang the pan a couple time on the counter to make sure it’s smooth on top and that no bubbles have formed, and throw it in the over for 70 to 80 minutes. There’s a lot of stuff in this pound cake; it needs its time to cook.
While that’s baking, it’s time to make the chocolate topping. *drools*
In a microwave safe bowl, add chocolate chips and some heavy cream, and microwave until it’s melted. Do this in 30 second increments so the cream and/or the chocolate don’t burn. Once the pound cake is out of the oven and cooled completely, pour the topping onto the cake. If there is any left in the bowl, you have my permission to eat it.
Finally, sprinkle the cake with more pretzels, potato chips, chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips. Put it in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes (although, let’s be honest, you could totally eat it while the chocolate is melt-y) and then slice it up and go to town!
Don’t let anyone stop you from keeping this all to yourself. You deserve it!
