Yummy Pound Cake – #southerncomfort

Who doesn’t love pound cake? It always amazes me that ingredients used to be measured by weight and in the south the tradition was one pound each of flour, butter, eggs and sugar. What’s your favorite pound cake recipe?

Ingredients
4 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups sugar
2 cups butter, softened
3/4 cup milk
6 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions
Preheat oven to 325°.
Place flour, sugar, butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla (in that order) in 4-qt. bowl of a heavy-duty electric stand mixer.
Beat at low speed 1 minute, stopping to scrape down sides.
Beat at medium speed 2 minutes.
Pour into a greased and floured 10-inch (16-cup) tube pan, and smooth.
Bake at 325° for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes.
Remove from pan and let cool completely.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
