Pound Cake

Pound Cake

I have been meaning to make this cake for a long time and just never got around to it so last week I made time and made it and it was sooooo good.
.............this is a recipe I got from a Food Forum that I belong to and it came from Becky.........who's a great foodie. She mentions it's her husband's favourite cake and she has been serving it to him for over 27 years.
So..........I figured it if it's been in the family this long then it must be good. My husband also loves pound cakes, he likes it with a glass of milk. This recipe is definetly a 'keeper'. It's very tasty and has simple ingredients and easy to make.

1 1/2 cups butter, room temperature

3 cups sugar

5 eggs

3 cups unbleached flour

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 pinch salt

1/2 tsp. baking powder


...........grease and flour a large tube pan.

Cream butter and sugar till smooth.
Add eggs one at a time beating well after each.
Add flour a little ata time.
Slowly add milk, flavouring and salt.
Put the baking powder last.
Pour batter into pan and place into a cold oven.
Turn temperature to 325 deg. F. and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or till till done.
Cool slightly and remove from pan.........yummy!

*********You can eat this plain or with some sort of lemon drizzle....or glaze.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend. I appreciate all comments left here and love to read them.
