My Favorite Pound Cake Recipe

I grew up in a Southern church full of little old ladies(most of them were related to me) that loved to cook.  I looked forward to those pot luck lunches and family reunions.  Every so often they would compile their favorite recipes into cookbooks and I am fortunate enough to have several that my grandma gave me.  I found this recipe in one of those cookbooks about a year ago and my family loves when I make it.  It is incredibly simple to make, but is a definite favorite.

-2 sticks butter(room temp)
-3 cups sugar
-6 eggs(room temp)
-3 cups all purpose flour
-1 cup whipping cream
-1tsp vanilla extract

Spray a bunt cake pan with cooking spray. DO NOT PREHEAT OVEN.

I use my mixer.  Mix butter and sugar until creamed.  Add eggs one at a time and beat well between each egg.  Add flour and whipping cream - leave mixer on low while doing this.  Put in vanilla and mix well.

Pour into the pan and place into the cold oven.

Turn the oven on 300 degrees and bake for about 80-85 minutes or until the testing stick comes out clean.  The directions say to cool completely, but I think these ladies were crazy!  Let it sit for a few minutes and then dump into a platter - eat it while its still warm - YUM!

You're wishing this was scratch and sniff, aren't you?  Its a little flaky where it baked on the bottom and tastes heavenly - now I'm craving some!

  Pin It!

Question: can you bake this in a loaf pan? I love pound cake, but prefer not to use a bundt pan. Do you know if the baking instructions are different if you use a different pan? Thanks!

Looks like it is a lot better than the pound cake in MREs, (meals, ready to eat, enclosed in plastic and stored on a shelf somewhere for a couple of years..)
