We combined a berry-studded pound cake with a cream cheese filling to create these mini loafs that are perfect for gifting.
A mini loaf pan that makes 9 perfect loaves is easy to find at any crafts/baking supply store. If you don’t want to invest in a new pan, these cakes can be made in a cupcake pan. They will be a bit smaller, so you will get more. The bake time will also be a few minutes less; start checking for doneness after 20 minutes.
The powdered sugar on the tops of these cakes guarantees that they don’t stick to the cellophane bags, ensuring a pretty package.
Tossing the berries with a bit of flour allows the berries to be suspended in the batter, so they don’t sink to the bottoms of the cakes.
Use any mixture of berries you like, but avoid strawberries as they hold a lot of water and will make for soggy cakes.
