READY IN: 1hr 25mins

  • Butter and flour a 10 inch tube or bundt pan.
  • Thoroughly cream together sugar and butter.
  • Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Mix in half the flour, then the whipping cream, then the other half of the flour.
  • Add Vanilla.
  • Pour into prepared pan.
  • Set in COLD oven and turn heat to 350ºF.
  • Bake 1 hour to 70 minutes, until a sharp knife inserted in cake turns out clean.
  • Cool in pan 5 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and cool thoroughly.
  • Wrapped well, this cake will keep for several days.
  • Note: while the original recipe did not suggest this, when I'm in the mood for something different I will add a teaspoon or two of orange or lemon extract for a lemon or orange pound cake.
