Pope Family Lamb Cake
A nice, dense lamb cake with good flavor and pound cake texture. Tom's favorite lamb cake we tried, and something we will be making again.
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 beaten egg yolks
  • 4 egg whites
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup whole milk
  1. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks, salt and vanilla.
  2. Sift together flour, cornstarch and baking powder. Add alternately milk and flour mixture to creamed ingredients.
  3. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites.
  4. Grease and flour pans, put toothpicks in ears and popsicle stick in neck and cover with batter. Bake at 350 degree oven for 55 mins.

This recipe makes enough for two vintage lamb pans, or one lamb pan and a dozen cupcakes.
