This cake is absolutely delicious. Don’t over-mix. I even use cold ingredients. Batter looks like smooth whipped butter. This recipe was given to me by a co-worker. If you like it just call it your ‘My Pound Cake’.
My Pound Cake
- 2 1/2 cups butter
- 3 cups white sugar
- 5 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon butternut flavored extract
- 1 cup milk
- 3 cups cake flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Sift together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and butternut extract. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.
3 Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
