The twins, Anne Parker and Leigh Harper, love pound cake. Their grandmother used to make it for them when they were little and always had one ready when they came home from college for a visit. Anne makes the pound cakes now and made this one for our Christmas morning.1 cup butter 3 cups sugar 6 eggs 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 pint of heavy whipping cream 3 cups all-purpose flour
Grease and flour one 9 or 10 inch tube pan or spray pan heavily. Cream butter and sugar with mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix well. Add the flour, one cup at a time while adding cream a little at a time until all flour and cream is mixed in well. Add the vanilla flavoring and blend well. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1-1/2 hours or until center springs back from small amount of pressure.
This does not have to be made in a tube pan. Be sure and grease or spray pan heavily and let cake sit and cool for about 12 minutes before removing from pan. Enjoy!
