Goat Cheese Pound Cake

Goat Cheese Pound Cake

Don’t you just love when you have those, “what if I did this?” moments and it ends up being a good move? That’s what happened with this Goat Cheese Pound Cake recipe. One day in my kitchen I was whipping up my mom’s recipe for Lemon Pound Cake when, in the corner of my eye, I saw a slab of goat cheese that I was planning to use for another recipe. I dropped in the log of goat cheese to my cake batter and watched as it swirled in. One taste of the batter and I knew it was meant to be. It was creamy with a little bit of tartness and a slight amount of sweetness.

My Goat Cheese Pound Cake recipe is only 10 simple ingredients. Although the cook time says it takes two hours, it’s actually really easy to make. It’s mostly just the bake time that takes the longest. In the roughly 90 minutes it takes to bake, you can read a book, do a face mask, get some fitness in (since you’ll probably want to after eating a slice of this decadent cake!). This cake is best served with some fresh whipped cream and strawberries or fruit preserves. I hope you enjoy my recipe. If you do decide to make it, tag me on instagram @thefamiliarkitchen and show me how it turned out for you!

  • Hand or stand mixer
  • Bundt or Loaf Pans


  • Unsalted Butter, 3 sticks

Make the batter.

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar. Using a hand-mixer on medium
    high speed and beat until it’s creamy and fluffy. This should take a few
    Now add the goat cheese, honey, sour cream, and vanilla paste (or extract). Mix
    this until it’s creamy.
    Add the eggs, one by one, and mix until evenly combined.
    Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mix in, cup by cup, then
    gently mix in on low speed. Mix until combined. This will be a thick batter.
    Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.

Bake it.

  • Grease a bundt pan or two loaf pans with spray oil or butter. Add about a tbsp of AP
    flour to the pan then tilt and tap the pan so that the AP flour moves and
    lightly dusts the entire pan. Pour in the batter and then give one firm tap to the
    pan against your working surface to burst any air pockets in the batter.
    Set the oven to 325 degrees and bake for about 1 hour and 30 minutes or insert a
    toothpick and, if it comes out clean, it’s done! Serve with fresh strawberries, whipped cream, or jam.

Hey! My name is Ann Ittoop and I am a South Indian/American South food blogger. Growing up as a second-generation Indian-American, I got the chance to experience the best of both food worlds, oftentimes on one plate! On one hand I had Kerala staples like appam and chicken curry. On the other I had chicken and waffles. If there’s one thing that has helped me understand my identity and express both ends of my cultural upbringing, it’s most definitely food. I have a firm belief there is literally magic in the cooking process. That’s why most nights you’ll find me in the kitchen. I’m there always testing and creating new recipes that stem from my wild imagination. And I’m there searching for the familiar memories of my childhood. I started The Familiar Kitchen to not only help myself find this magic, but for those seeking a way to find their own magic. Join me on my adventures through cooking classic Kerala-inspired dishes, some of my Southern favorites, and all the recipes in between.
