I think I will forever associate pound cake with her kindness, generosity, and love. She always made hers in a tube pan / angel food cake pan, like the one in the photo here.
I didn't have time to bake this week, so I am using an image from the Southern Living website. If you click on the link, you'll find the magazine's "10 Steps to the Perfect Pound Cake." I plan to study those tips, because my cakes are never quite as good as Dotty's were. That's probably because she put a lot of love into her baking.
Here is her recipe in her own words.
Dotty's Pound Cake
- 1 stick butter
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
Batter will be thin. I use an angel cake pan, but I think a Bundt would be good. Bake at 325F for 50 to 60 minutes. Test before removing.
