I am told this recipe is over 100 years old.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease 3 - 8x4 inch loaf pans with shortening and line with bottom of pan with parchment paper.
  3. With a mixer cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well. Mix in the flour alternating with the milk. Do not over mix.
  4. Divide batter between the greased loaf pans. Bake for 70 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Remove the cakes from the oven, and run a knife around the edges of the cake to loosen sides. Cool cakes in the pans for 10-15 minutes, then remove and let them finish cooling before slicing.
