I mentioned in one of my Christmas posts that one of my favorite things I received was a book full of family recipes from my mother-in-law. B had mentioned that his mom made an amazing pound cake, and since I had never tried my hand at pound cakes, I knew I wanted to make this my weekend baking project.
And it’s literally the easiest thing – the hardest part was making sure to get it cooked perfectly, since the recipe card didn’t have a cook for time. I’ll tell you how long I cooked it for, but use your own discretion of course.
WHAT YOU NEED
3 sticks of butter
1 lb powdered sugar
3 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
WHAT YOU DO
Mix as it comes (this was on the original recipe card, and I love it, so here it stays)
Cook 300 degrees ( I cooked mine for 80 minutes, and the toothpick came out clean)
It came out beautifully – dense and delicious! Give it a go!
