Pound Cake

I’m bored. When I’m bored, I bake. Pound cake is easy and delicious and we had fresh strawberries so…. Done deal.  This recipe is for an old fashioned pound cake. No added or crazy ingredients. Butter is the MVP. Do I need to say anything else? Go start your ovens.

What you will need:

9 x 5 inch loaf pan, greased

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
13 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons milk
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl (or bowl of your electric mixer), beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add milk and vanilla and beat until incorporated. Add eggs, one at a time and beat well after each addition. Add in flour mixture until combined.

Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Let cool on wire rack before inverting. Slice and serve with fresh berries and/or whipped cream! Enjoy!
