My Mom gavae me this recipe 40 years ago. It is great for strawberry shortcake or just eating alone. You can also add a glaze or different flavorings to it for a little variety

20 Min

Cook:

1 Hr

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1 lb
butter
1 lb
confectioners sugar
1 lb
cake flour
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
vanilla extract
6
eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream butter and sugar together till light and fluffy
Add salt and flavorings(I use almond extract, lemon, chocolate or whatever flavor you like)
2
Add flour and an egg, beating well after each. When all the flour and eggs are mixed in the batter, beat for another 2-4 minutes at high speed. The air you beat into the cake will make it rise, so it is important that it is beat well.
3
Bake at 350 degrees for one hour in a well greased tube pan. Check if done by inserting a toothpick near the center of pan.
Cool, enjoy!!!
