My Pound Cake Recipe
- 2 ½ cups butter
- 3 cups white sugar
- 5 eggs
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon butternut flavored extract
- 1 cup milk
- 3 cups cake flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Sift together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
step 2: In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and butternut extract. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.
step 3: Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
