This recipe was Printed in a Local Mississippi Newspaper Over 20-25 Years ago. The recipe came from a Dear Old Friend Of Elvis's. This Lady, used to make this for him every Christmas and on Special Occasions according to the article. In the Article she made the Paper keep her Name Anonymous, for Fear that people would Bombard her Tupelo, Missippi Home with Requests to make her cakes for them.
This batter is so good, I could eat it without ever baking the cake. This cake is so Light, and tender its just wonderful. There are Just NO WORDS that describe the delicate texture and taste.
This cake is so Good, You won't have to ask her to bake for You.
You can do it yourself, with pride.
Note: DO NOT PREHEAT YOUR OVEN
then Whipping cream,
then the other 1/2 of the SIFTED flour. Stir well
My Personal Note:
when I baked this in My Oven I baked this at 350 for 1 hr 50 min. and it was done. I tested with a sharp knife, as its pretty tall. My suggestion; Watch your ovens and check after 1 1/2 hrs as ovens do differ.
(This recipe is printed as it was in the Mississippi Newspaper article)
Original Recipe does not say this, But I have used other flavors, such as, Orange and Lemon Extract in place of Vanilla, for Lemon or Orange Pound cake.
