The principal objective of this study was to develop a processed food using aged garlic. Pound cake samples were prepared with semi-solid aged garlic at levels of 0, 5, 10 and 15% ($25^{\circ}C$, 7 days). The pH of the batter prepared with the aged garlic ranged between 6.79 and 7.01 and the control pH was 7.21. The specific loaf volume of the pound cake prepared with the addition of 5~15% aged garlic decreased, from 2.78 to 2.51 cm3/g. The baking loss rate of the pound cake prepared with 0~15% added aged garlic also decreased by 6.91~6.42%. The lightness, redness, and yellowness values of the pound cake decreased with increases in the percentage of aged garlic. The adhesiveness, gumminess, and chewiness of the samples did not differ significantly with differing amounts of added aged garlic. DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) radical scavenging activity, however, was improved significantly via the addition of aged garlic. In the sensory evaluations, the pound cake prepared with 10% added aged garlic received higher acceptance scores for the properties of smell, taste, softness, moistness, adhesiveness and overall acceptability. Consequently, the optimal quality achieved in this set of experiments was with a pound cake to which 10% aged garlic had been added.
