The Very Best Pound Cake
105 mins (prep 15, cooking 90)
5 ingredients
1 servings
I found this recipe in a church cookbook around 15 years ago and have been making it since. I never even thought about trying another pound cake recipe because I just don’t think it gets any better than this. Make sure that you sift the flour into a measuring cup to total 4 cups. In other words; sift before measuring. I really don’t know how much difference it would make but that’s the way the recipe was written. And it is all purpose flour. The recipe in the cookbook didn’t state what kind of flour so the first time I made it I used self rising. It rose beautifully and looked so pretty. For about a minute and a half. It fairly quickly deflated into a not so pretty mess.
