This recipe was given to me by my friend, Kelly. She is famous for this cake. She suggests using a tube pan which has a bottom that lifts out which makes it easier to get the cake out of the pan.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a bundt or tube pan.
  2. Cream butter and sugar in a mixer. Add the nutmeg. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl.
  3. Add one egg at a time amd mix well.
  4. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in another bowl.
  5. Alternate adding the flour mixture and the milk until all is incorporated. (Do not over mix or you risk a tough cake.).
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes. A tooth pick inserted in center should come out clean. Let cake cool then loosen sides with a knife.
  7. (This recipe can be divided into two loaf pans, adjust the cooking time to 55 min to 1 hour. Be sure the center is done by checking with a toothpick.).

I tried this cake last weekend and it didn't work. It never set up during baking. I am an experienced baker and followed the recipe to the letter. I have never made a pound cake with 1 cup of milk or any other liquid in it. Maybe that ingredient is incorrect. I was very disappointed.
