Mom's Old-fashioned Pound Cake

Mom's old recipe!

Lately, I've been going through my mom's old wooden recipe box and finding treasures I had forgotten about.  This Pound Cake recipe is one of those treasures!  I can still remember her baking this and my anticipation as I waited for it to come out of the oven.  

It's so easy, too!  Just put all the ingredients in a bowl and blend until smooth, pour into the loaf pan and you're done...let the oven do the rest.  

This cake is delicious with a cup of tea or coffee, or used as the base for a beautiful fruit dessert!  Slice it lengthwise into three sections and you can fill it with cream, mousse, ice cream.  It's just so versatile and with a little imagination you can make it into a very special dessert.


2/3 cup butter                                        
How beautiful is this?

1 1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 tsp. lemon extract*
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 300'F.  Grease and flour (or spray) a 9x6x3" loaf pan.

Beat all ingredients together in a bowl until smooth, about 2 minutes.  Pour into prepared loaf pan.

Bake at 300'F. for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  

*You can substitute the lemon with vanilla extract, if you prefer a vanilla flavor.
