Mom's Pound Cake

How many of us remember "Mom's Pound Cake"... It was just perfect!  So moist and tasty you had to have a couple of slices.... and it was perfect with a cup of morning coffee.


4 Sticks of Room Temperature Unsalted Butter
2 Cups of Sugar
1 1/2 Tsps of Vanilla
6 Extra Large Eggs
3 Cups of Sifted Cake Flour

Glaze: 2 Cups of Confection Sugar, 1/2 Cup of Salted Sweet Cream Butter, 1/2 tsp of Vanilla 

Preheat oven to 325. Use Crisco shortening to grease your pan then lightly dust it with flour.

Blend butter and sugar for about 15 minutes until light and fluffy. Add eggs 2 at a time alternating with each cup of flour. Final step is to add your flavoring. It's also good with Almond Flavoring.  Do not over mix. 

Add melted butter to your confection sugar. Once blended well add your vanilla. 

Bake for 1hour and 10 to 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to sit for about 2 minutes.  Remove from bundt cake pan and place on a cake plate.  Stick straw size holes into top of cake where glaze can fill each hole then pour the remaining glaze over the entire top of your cake.  Enjoy!
