Pound Cake

Wednesday, December 3, 2008
This recipe is from today's Birmingham News. I love to bake cakes - especially pound cakes. This looks like a really simple and good pound cake. I am posting the recipe here so I don't lose it or forget to make it. It is from the BBQ joint Big Daddy's BBQ in Warrior, AL.


1 1/4 pounds of butter
3 cups sugar
6 large eggs
4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease and flour a tube pan. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating until eggs disappear.Add flour to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour. Beat at a low speed until blended after each addition. Stir in extracts. Pour batter into pan.Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour and 40 minutes, or until a long wooden pick is inserted and comes out clean. Cool in pan on a cooling rack for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from pan to cooling rack and cool 1 hour or until completely cool.
