Old Fashioned Pound Cake

A friend of mine shared her family's pound cake recipe with me which I love to make. She brings this cake in to work to share with us and on special occasions. This is where simple just tastes so good. Only a few ingredients and you have such a moist, buttery cake. She uses almond extract which gives a nice almond taste. If that's not your thing, you can use a lemon extract to substitute. That's why I love baking. I always like to tweak recipes to how I like it.

Old Fashioned Pound Cake

1/2 lb butter (at room temperature)
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
5 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
2 tsp almond extract or you can use vanilla or lemon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Grease an 8 inch tube cake pan

Cream butter well. Add sugar, a tablespoon at a time, mixing well. Then add eggs, one at a time. Then add flour, a couple of tablespoons at a time. Almond flavoring comes last.

Pour into your prepared cake pan and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.
