Pop’s Pound Cake
Did you know that pound cake got its name because it contains one pound butter, one pound
flour, one pound sugar and one pound eggs. It’s a marvelous combination of ingredients and
the taste will thrill you. It’s easy to make just be sure to beat the ingredients enough.
1 lb sweet unsalted butter
4 cup flour
3 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
All ingredients at room temp.
Preheat the oven to 305oF.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla until creamy. In a large bowl, cream the
butter and flour until it is the consistency of whipped cream. Be patient, it takes a while.
It's best to use an electric mixer (a heavy duty type like a Kitchenaid works best). If
yours isn't so heavy duty, cream the butter first and then add the flour a cup at a time
and beat it to a light consistency. Add the egg mixture and beat until stiff. Pour into a
greased and floured 10 inch tube pan.
For marble pound, melt a bakers chocolate square and blend it into a small amount of the
dough. Swirl it through the middle of the pan of dough. Disperse it with a knife. Be
creative! Also works well with chocolate chips or, better yet, both of the above.
Half the recipe fits a 9"x5" baking pan.
Bake at 305o for about 1¼ hour or until it tests as done.
