This is the most delicious pound cake I have ever had .It travels well also .I made two and sent one to my mother in Florida(i live in N.Y.)And it arrived in one piece and very DELICIOUS...according to MOM!I like to cut it into 16 slices and freeze it .When I take it out of the freezer I microwave it for 15 seconds and it tastes like it came fresh out of the oven!
1butter and flour a ten inch tube pan.Thoroughly cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs ,one at a time ,beating well after each addition.It is essential that the eggs be at room temperature, and that each be thoroughly incorporated into the batter.Use a powerful electric mixer,and beat a full two minutes after adding each egg.
Mix in half of the flour,then the whipping cream,then the other half of the flour.add vanilla.When all ingredients are combined,beat five minutes more.
Pour batter into prepared pan.Set in COLD oven and turn heat to 350*.Bake 60 to 70 minutes,until a toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean.Cool in pan for five minutes.Remove from pan and cool thoroughly.
