Have some extra heavy cream in the fridge that you’re desperate to use up? Make a simple and elegant cream cake dusted with powdered sugar.


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar, for decorating


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 10-cup bundt pan.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the eggs and granulated sugar until a thick, light yellow, lightly whipped mixture forms.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In another separate small bowl, mix together the heavy cream and vanilla.
  5. On low speed, alternate adding the dry ingredients and wet ingredients to the egg mixture, beginning and ending with the dry mix. Beat just until a thick batter forms, without overmixing.
  6. Spread batter evenly in the prepared bundt pan. Transfer to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top is puffy and light golden brown, and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and let cool in the pan for 45 minutes before inverting and removing from the pan. Let the cake cool completely on the wire rack.
  8. Once cooled, dust a light coating of powdered sugar on the top of the cake and serve.
