This is by far one of the best pound cake recipes I have ever made.
You will need:
1 cup butter (you can use real butter or margarine: I chose margarine)
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
1 cup milk
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix together the butter and shortening
slowly add in the 3 cups of sugar
next add eggs 1 by 1 combining after each addition
in a separate bowl mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Start adding the flour mixture.
Alternate between adding flour and milk ending with flour.
lastly add the vanilla
You can use a tube pan for this but I just chose to use 2 bread pans. Whatever pan you use butter the pans
and then coat with flour
Here is what the batter will look like
Fill the pans and place in a 350 degree oven for 1- 1 1/2 hours. I usually let mine bake for about an hour, but check the inside with a toothpick.
Yum! Make sure you let this cool completely before taking it out of the pan.
You can eat this with anything, my husband will have it with ice cream. I usually just warm it up in the microwave for about 15 seconds and add a teaspoon or so of butter to melt. Delicious!!!
