Sandkuchen, a German Pound Cake

Jump to recipe

Sandkuchen, as the name says, is a dry version compared to the American pound cake. It’s made with lots of butter and eggs, although the butter can be replaced with oil to make it moist. Another recipe you might like is my French lemon cake (Cake au Citron)

The most popular Gugelhupf form can be ordered here

Can be covered with powdered sugar or a sugar glaze

For this recipe I used two rectangular cake pans. You can order them on Amazon. I like to wrap and freeze one loaf for guests later.
You could use a round pound cake form like these ones below:
