This is my Aunt Gloria's pound cake recipe. It really is the best pound cake I've ever had. I try not to make it too often because my husband tends to eat the whole thing!!!!!!

Ingredients

3/4 lb
butter - room temperature
2 1/2 c
sugar
6
eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla
1/4 tsp
salt
3 tsp
baking powder
3 c
flour
3/4 c
milk - room temperature

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a standing mixer, beat the butter and sugar.
2
Add eggs - one at a time.
3
Add the vanilla.
4
In a bowl, combine the salt, baking powder and flour.
5
Add the flour mixture and milk, alternatly.
6
Beat for 20 minutes. (Note: I only beat for another 5-10 minutes and it's fine.)
7
Place batter in a greased/floured tube pan.
8
Place in cold oven and set temperature to 350 degrees. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
9
Remove cake from oven very carefully and place it carefully where it can cool. You want to prevent it from dropping.

Dee, it really is our favorite pound cake. Even tastes better after it sits for a couple of days. Hope you give it a try.

Betty....do you mean Zeppole? It's fried Italian dough that gets sprinkled with powdered sugar. If not, check out the group "Looking for..." I'm sure someone will be able to help you.
