The BEST Pound Cake Recipe

The BEST Pound Cake Recipe

3 c. sifted, all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 c. butter
3 c. sugar
5 large eggs
1 c. heavy whipping cream
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

In a small bowl whisk salt and baking powder into the sifted flour. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar together with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time.
Add in 1/3 of the flour mixture and beat then add in half of the cream. Alternate the flour and cream ending with flour and beat well. Bear in the vanilla.

Spray 2 loaf pans with Pam spray and pour in the batter about 2/3 of the way full.

Put pans into a COLD oven and bake at 325 degrees for about 1 hour and 20 minutes. It is done when toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

**I would check them around an hour--mine finishes then.
