Linda's Story

My grandmother has been gone for years now but she made the best pound cake that I have ever eaten. It was crispy on the top and sides and so delicious and moist on the inside. I have tried many recipes but never have been able to get it to taste like her. I tried this recipe and it is close, not quite but since I can't have hers this will have to do.

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
butter, softened
8 oz
cream cheese, softened
3 c
sugar
6 large
eggs
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
3 c
all purpose flour
1/8 tsp
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease and flour 10 inch tube pan.
2
Beat butter and cream cheese until creamy, about 2 minutes..Gradually add sugar and beat 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and mix well. Combine flour and salt in a four cup measuring cup and gradually add to butter mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended. Pour batter into the prepared tube pan. Fill a 2 cup measuring cup with water. Place in oven with the cake. Make sure measuring cup is oven proof. Bake at 300 hundred oven for an hour and a half. After removing from pan, place on rack to cool completely.

Just baked this cake today and it turned out beautifully! Wonderful crispy top and great density that is moist and delicious. I did not use the cup of water in the oven but I started my cake in a cold oven and baked at 315 degrees for about 1 hour and 45 minutes. I heavily greased my tall tube pan with shortening and floured the surface. Thanks for posting this recipe because I could not find my standard one that I always used before moving. Bless your heart!
