Fannie Farmer's Pound Cake

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Maureenie

I found this recipe on television over 20 years ago. It consistently is the best pound cake I have made. It has been adapted for modern times. A true pound cake is a pound each of butter, sugar, flour and eggs. This recipe is half.

I made this last night to serve with strawberries and whipped cream and it was wonderful. Baked up perfectly after 70 min. Thanks for posting!
