Baptist Pound Cake
How to Make Baptist Pound Cake
- Using a hand or standing mixer, cream the butter and shortening together. Then add in the sugar and mix well.
- Add the eggs one at at time, mixing well after each.
- Whisk together the flour and baking powder. Alternate adding this and the milk to the sugar mixture. So not over mix or it might toughen the batter. Add the vanilla.
- Pour this into a greased bundt pan, smoothing over the top. Put into a COLD OVEN and set it for 350. Bake it for 1 hour 5-15 minutes. The top should still look a little wet. Test for doneness with a straw.
