Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 3 1/2 c
    all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp
    baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp
    salt
  • 1 lb
    butter at room temperature
  • 2 c
    sugar

How to Make Bourbon Pound Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Cream the butter
    and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  2. Fold in half the flour, then fold in the milk, then the remaining
    flour, followed by the bourbon and vanilla. Pour the batter into two
    lightly greased and floured 9-inch (23 cm) loaf pans and run the blade
    of a knife through the batter in an X pattern from corner to corner of
    the pans to eliminate air bubbles.
  3. Place the pans in the center of a
    cool oven, leaving a space between them. Turn the oven to 325F (165C)
    and bake for about 1 hour, until a wooden skewer inserted in the
    middle comes out clean. Turn off the oven and let the cakes cool in
    the oven for 10 minutes. Open the oven door and cool for 30 minutes.
    Turn the cakes out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
