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