Pound Cake recipe

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)

Heat oven to 350 degree
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.

Bake tube pan for 1 hour and 10 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes. Loaf pans bake 55 to 60 minutes or until tooth pick inserted into middle comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes and remove from pan.
