How to Make Easy Kentucky Pound Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325* and grease and flour pan(bundt or fluted). I am told it makes 2 nice loaf cakes as well.
  2. ALL ingredients should be at room temperature.
  3. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs,one at a time, mixing well after each one.
  5. Sift 3 cups of flour with baking powder and salt.
  6. Starting with flour mixture,add alternately flour mixture and milk.
  7. Mix in extract(s).
  8. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for about 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes and then turn out on rack to cool. If glazing let the cake cool completely first.
  9. I made this cake today and I needed to cook it for one hour and 15 minutes...so make sure you test with a toothpick :o)
