Sweeten up hump day with a very simple, very delicious pound cake from the Silver Palate Cookbook. Classic, simple, and excellent plain, glazed, or with whipped cream and berries.
1/2 pound (2 sticks) sweet butter
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Cook's Choice Vanilla Extract
5 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350*F Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
Cream butter and sugar gradually; beat until fluffy.
Sift flour and add to butter mixture. Stir just enough to blend.
Add lemon juice and vanilla; stir well. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Pour batter into the prepared bundt pan. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
(After about 30 minutes, cover cake closely with aluminum foil.)
The best flavorings! I have a question about the almond, if someone is allergic to almonds would they be allergic to the extract as well?
