This is a recipe that my great aunt gave each girl when she got married, I remember when I got my copy. I always thought her last name was "Pounds" because of this cake.

Ingredients

1 lb
butter, softened
2 c
sugar
12
eggs
1 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
vanilla
4 c
flour
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350*
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla and salt. Keep mixing until mixture is beginning to looked whipped.
2
Add flour and baking powder to mixture 1/2 cup at a time.
3
Grease and flour a tube pan.
Pour cake batter into greased and floured pan. Shake it a little to make sure it is even in the pan then pick it up a few inches off the counter (2 or 3 inches) and drop it back onto the counter three or four times. (Gets rid of air bubbles for more even baking.)

Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes.

(A bunt pan can be used and Baker's Joy can also be used.)
