It's Not Just Popcorn!

Grandmother’s Pound Cake

on March 25, 2010

As I’ve said before I don’t usually bake. But this recipe was my very first baking attempt way back when I was a Girl Scout! Every year they had a baking contest and this was my recipe. I can’t remember where I found the recipe originally but the book was very old. This was probably in the late 60’s or early 70’s! And one of the funniest things I remember about this recipe and that time period was when my brother Billy asked if he could have some of the finished product. We told him he couldn’t because it was for Girl Scouts! And anytime we baked from then on we kept telling him he couldn’t have any because “It’s for Girl Scouts!” I think I actually won 3rd prize for the recipe also. Hard to remember that far back. It’s just a basic pound cake recipe but was very good! It’s a very dense cake too. Enjoy it with ice cream, fruit, whipped cream or any topping you want. And no, it’s not a low-calorie recipe so beware!

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup butter, at room temperature

5 eggs

2 cups flour

1 2/3 cup sugar
