Millionaire's Pound Cake

From  my mom, who got it from Louise, our next door neighbor when I was a boy, who got it from her mom. Lou would be well over 100yo if she was still with us today. She told me she remembered her father mixing this cake when she was a girl, she said he beat it 700 strokes with a wooden spoon to make it turn out right.

I used a Kitchenaid! =D

It won't make you a millionaire, but it sure is rich!

Preheat oven 325°F

3 cups sugar
1 lb butter (room temp)
6 EO eggs (room temp)
4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup milk (room temp)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
1 tsp lemon flavoring
1/2 tsp almond flavoring (optional)

Grease and flour tube cake pan. Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing thoroughly between each one.  Add flavorings. Alternate adding milk and flour, mix until smooth.  Bake on rack that has the top of the pan near the center of the oven.  Bake at 325°F for 1hr and 20 min, or until toothpick inserted in the crack on top comes out clean. Let cool before unpanning to avoid sad spot at the crack. Cool 20 min before unpanning if using the glaze, glaze while still warm.


Glaze with 1-1/2 cups 10X sugar and 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice. (I like it plain, better.)

When no one is looking, I take 1/2" flat slices (not radial) and toast them well then spread soft butter on them... Mmmm and a cup of black coffee... wow. Think I'm going to go mix up another one now.  :eat:


Edited to include eggs and a few other tips... :P

Excellent. I'm going to pass this on to my husband. He seems to be the baker in our house.
