I was doing a pound cake and instead of gradually adding the sugar to the butter, I mixed both together. I continued with the recipe because I was too afraid of telling my mom. Will my cake come out good? Or it does not affect anything?
It shouldn't make any difference.
Here are some recipes that don't mention adding the sugar bit by bit:
If you beat the butter and sugar to a fluffy consistency everything should be all right.
(As far as I know) The worst that could happen is that your pound cake will be slightly denser than usual.
