POUND CAKE RECIPE- A CLASSIC SOUTHERN FAVORITE

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 lb. (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2 T. Crisco shortening
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 c. milk (my mother-in-law and I use 2% milk)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Cream the sugar, butter, and Crisco with an electric mixer, about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add eggs and vanilla; beat with an electric mixer about 10-15 minutes. Be sure to beat for the full time.
  3. Combine the flour and baking powder. With the mixer on low, add flour mixture and milk, alternately, to the creamed sugar and eggs mixture. Mix after each addition until just combined.
  4. Pour batter into a tube pan that has been generously sprayed with non-stick baking spray {or buttered & floured}. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until a toothpick inserted in the top comes out clean.
  5. Cool about a 1/2 an hour in the pan; remove cake from pan.
