March 4 is National Pound Cake Day!
I love every kind of cake there is. It doesn't matter if it's pound cake, coffee cake or birthday cake.... I will eat it up.
My sister in law Brenda can bake some fantastic pound cakes and it's traditional for her to bake many of them at Christmas time and give them away to friends and family.
The way I like to eat pound cake is with can milk bored on top so it can soak in the cake. Then put cold sliced peaches on top. yum!
McNannygocious Pound Cake
1 8oz Philly Cream Cheese
1 1/2 cups Butter (3 sticks)
3 cups Flour (Triple Sifted)
3 Cups Sugar
2 teas. Vanilla Butter and Nut Flavoring *
1 teas. Butter Flavoring
1 teas. Vanilla Flavoring
1/2 teas. Lemon Flavoring
Cream butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Add eggs, flavorings. Triple sift flour and remeasure 3 cups. Blend into creamed mixture. Bake in a tube pan at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Easy, huh?
* If Vanilla Butter and Nut Flavoring is not available in your area, use 1 extra teaspoon of Vanilla and 1 extra teaspoon of Butter flavoring instead. Also, for a change, you can substitute the 1/2 teaspoon Lemon extract with any extract of your choice like rum, brandy, almond, or orange.
