How To Make gramma's pound cake

  • 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.
