Recipe by mary winecoff
This is my mother's famous pound cake recipe. I have posted it so that my brother and sisters can access it at any time. She used to make this for all the church and school bazaars and it was the first to go. I made it for my school bazaar and got many requests for the recipe. My mother is a southern cook from those bygone years where everyone knew by heart the recipe for a good pound cake. This is hers.
- 3⁄4 lb butter (no substitute)
- 1 (16 ounce) box confectioners' sugar
- 6 eggs
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
