Since I did the blogs remembering my adventures at Ms. Alice’s house, I decided it would be a good idea to post recipes for the various foods I mentioned.
Pound cake is one of those foods. No one should miss out on pound cake.
What you need:
- 3 sticks margarine
- 8 ounces of cream cheese
- 3 cups of sugar
- 6 eggs
- 3 cups of cake flour
- 1 teaspoon of flavoring (usually this is vanilla extract)
What you do:
- Make the cream FIRST. Mix the MARGARINE, CREAM CHEESE, and SUGAR together in a mixer.
- Add the EGGS, SLOWLY and ONE AT A TIME.
- Add the FLOUR; mix well.
- Add the flavoring.
Now, what you do:
- Mix well and pour into a greased, floured pan. Bake at 350º for one hour and 20 minutes to one hour and 40 minutes.
I should add something about letting the cake cool afterwards, and flipping it out of the Bundt pan onto the cake stand.
My recommendation: serve the pound cake with dark coffee. The bitterness of the coffee will complement the sweetness of the cake.
