Aunt Aileen's Pound Cake

Andra Kubala


This is a recipe that my great aunt gave each girl when she got married, I remember when I got my copy. I always thought her last name was "Pounds" because of this cake.

How to Make Aunt Aileen's Pound Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 350*
    Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla and salt. Keep mixing until mixture is beginning to looked whipped.
  2. Add flour and baking powder to mixture 1/2 cup at a time.
  3. Grease and flour a tube pan.
    Pour cake batter into greased and floured pan. Shake it a little to make sure it is even in the pan then pick it up a few inches off the counter (2 or 3 inches) and drop it back onto the counter three or four times. (Gets rid of air bubbles for more even baking.)

    Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes.

    (A bunt pan can be used and Baker's Joy can also be used.)
