Yields2 cakes

Cooking Time1 hr 15 min

Cooking MethodOven

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup (3 sticks) salted butter, softened
  • 3 cups white granulated sugar
  • 6 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 3 cups sifted cake flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 pint whipping cream
  • For the Glaze
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 2-4 tablespoons heavy cream
  • Your choice of extract flavoring (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  2. Butter and lightly flour two loaf pans.

  3. Sift cake flour once and measure. Set aside.

  4. In large mixing bowl, cream butter then gradually add sugar, beating on medium speed until creamy.

  5. Add eggs, one at a time, just until blended after each addition.

  6. Add sifted cake flour and whipping cream alternately beating on low speed until just blended (over-beating will yield a dry and heavy cake).

  7. Add vanilla. For richer flavor, add an additional 1 teaspoons vanilla extract.

  8. Pour into prepared loaf pans.

  9. Bake for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a knife inserted in center of cake comes out clean.

  10. Cool in pans on wire rack 15-20 minutes.

  11. Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.

  12. Prepare glaze, if desired, by combining listed ingredients and mixing thoroughly. Spread on top of cooled cakes and serve.

I'm a fan of pound cake, and this recipe did not disappoint. The whipping cream in the batter gave it a very nice flavor .
