Looking for a fun way to celebrate the "King of Rock and Roll"? How about whipping up one of his favorite desserts? Our recipe for Elvis' Whipping Cream Pound Cake is inspired by the same pound cake that one of his childhood friends would make for him every year. It's a rich-tasting and moist pound cake with a perfectly golden crust!

What You'll Need

  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 7 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Confectioners' sugar for sprinkling

What to Do

  1. Coat a 10-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray, then lightly dust with flour.
  2. In a large bowl, beat granulated sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add half the sifted flour, the heavy cream, vanilla, and remaining flour; beat until thoroughly combined. Pour batter into pan.
  3. Place pan in cold oven and turn oven to 350 degrees F. Bake 70 to 75 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan 15 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. When ready to serve, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.


  • To take this over the top, we drizzle it with a whipped cream glaze we make by mixing together 1 cup confectioners' sugar, 1/4 cup heavy cream, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract until smooth.

I got this recipe from a friend years ago, and its now a family favorite. Yes, its rich, but in moderation its wonderful. And, if you don't glaze the cake or sprinkle it with powdered sugar, it freezes well. I just wrap each piece in plastic wrap, then place in a zip-top freezer bag, and freeze. When I want some, I take out a piece and thaw it in the refrigerator overnight or just out on the counter. I cut it into pieces, and freeze each piece separately, so I can take out just what I want or need, not the entire cake. Its wonderful topped with fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream or small scoop of ice cream.

Hmmmmmmmm 3 cups sugar... over a half dozen eggs ..one half pound of butter and 1 cup of heavy cream in just one cake.. No wonder it killed Elvis!

Tried this recipe? What did you think?

When you put the cake in the cold oven, do you start the timer at that point?

Good morning! Yes, that is when you start the timer. Enjoy!
