Happy Wednesday Y’all!
During the holidays, I absolutely love to bake. I think this is the best time of year to enjoy amazing food, good friends, and to just enjoy life. In the last post I made one of my favorite desserts a Sweet Potato Pie, the recipe can be found A Southern Homemade Sweet Potato Recipe. In this post, I have decided to make a simple Southern Style Pound cake. Keep reading for the delicious recipe and the beautiful finished pound cake.
Before we can begin baking anything of course we’re going to need a list of ingredients for our cake.
List of Ingredients for the Cake:
2 Sticks of Unsalted Butter
1/2 Cup of Shortening
3 Cups of Sugar
5 Cups of All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoons of Salt
1 Cup of Milk
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Flavor
In a mixing bowl, add softened butter and shortening, be sure to mix them together. Then add sugar a little at a time while still mixing. Be sure to add your eggs to the mix one at a time, and be sure to continue mixing after each egg is added.
In a separate bowl, add flour, salt, baking powder, which are your dry ingredients. Stir these ingredients with a large spoon, and then add to your cake batter. Start adding some flour, a little at time, add your milk. Then begin to alternatively add your milk, flour, milk, and flour. Don’t forget to add your 1 teaspoon of vanilla flavor to your cake mixture.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and when your cake is well mixed, pour into a greased and floured pan. Your cake will cook for about 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until your toothpick comes out clean.
After you let your cake cool, place your cake plate over the top of the bundt and flip your cake over.
Once your cake is finished you can feel free to enjoy, a healthy slice. I love to eat my cake in the morning with a steaming cup of coffee.
I hope y’all enjoyed this post!
