Today I made two pound cakes from a tried and true Betty Crocker recipe that I have made many times because it is the best!
2.5 cups of sugar
1 cup of butter softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 large eggs
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mil or evaporated milk (I use evaporated)
Grease and flour angel food pan (tube pan) or two loaf pans (that's what I use)
Beat sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs in bowl with electric mixer on low for 30 seconds. Beat on high speed for five minutes scraping bowl occasionally. Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Beat flour mixture into sugar mixture alternately with milk on low speed. Spread in pans.
