    A Pinch of This ...'s Note:

    I found this recipe in a church cookbook around 15 years ago and have been making it since. I never even thought about trying another pound cake recipe because I just don’t think it gets any better than this. Make sure that you sift the flour into a measuring cup to total 4 cups. In other words; sift before measuring. I really don’t know how much difference it would make but that’s the way the recipe was written. And it is all purpose flour. The recipe in the cookbook didn’t state what kind of flour so the first time I made it I used self rising. It rose beautifully and looked so pretty. For about a minute and a half. It fairly quickly deflated into a not so pretty mess.

      Place batter into a greased and floured 10” tube cake pan. Tap the bottom of the pan on a counter top a couple of times to get rid of any air bubbles.

      I can't believe this hasn't been rated yet. So simple and so good. I was looking for something not too sweet to make with what I had on hand. This was perfect. I was a little leary of it at first, I mean 10 eggs and 1&1/2 hours to cook. I'd never made a pound cake before. But this one is one I will make many many times.

      I have made many pound cakes but it has been some time since I made one. I found this easy...4 ingredients. I followed the directions except for cooking time. My oven cooks a little higher so I cooked it 5 minutes less. It was perfect. It is a beautiful cake with the size and the color, and it is delicious
