How to Make Best Pound Cake Ever... Seriously!

Step-by-Step

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