M-J's Pound Cake Recipe 2017

Pound Cake Recipe ©M-Jeanne de Mesterton 2017 2 Sticks of Room-Temperature Butter 2 Cups of Sugar 3 Cups of White or Unbleached White Flour 1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Powder 1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Soda 1 Teaspoon of Salt 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla, OR Two Teaspoons of Vanilla and One Teaspoon of Almond Extract 4 Eggs 3/4 Cup of Buttermilk, OR Milk plus One Tablespoon of Lemon Juice Preheat oven to 350°. Cream the butter and sugar, add vanilla and almond extracts, then beat until fluffy. Blend in half of the eggs. Gradually add flour and other dry ingredients (I usually combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large measuring cup, & mix it with a fork so it's ready to be incorporated into the batter); add the other two eggs, beating, then gradually add the milk. Beat for three minutes. Pour into a 16" Pullman loaf pan, or two regular meatloaf-pans, and bake for 1.5 hours OR until a thin knife or skewer inserted into the cake’s center
