Clara's Pound Cake

This old fashioned pound cake recipe was given to my mother by a close friend of hers. It has to be the best pound cake, bar none, that I have ever had. Whenever I make it to take somewhere, folks love it. When I made it just for us, it disappeared very quickly. Great by itself, w/ strawberries on the side, or toasted... Sometimes, I substitute 1 t lemon or almond extract for 1 of the t of vanilla... excellent! NOTE: Ovens vary considerably so I recommend checking for done-ness before removing from the oven. Lightly press the top of the cake with your finger. You should be able to tell whether or not the cake is done. You may have to continue baking for an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
