Tube Pound Cake

I had previously posted my first baking recipe for Girl Scouts, this is my sister Michele’s first recipe. For Girl Scouts as well. (Sorry Billy, it’s for Girl Scouts!) It’s another pound cake but made in a tube pan. It’s also a really easy recipe and is delicious. This cake is extremely moist and buttery, and it is better if allowed to stand for at least 4 hours before being served.


2 cups self-rising cake flour

4 eggs

1½ cups sugar

1 cup butter (½ pound)

½ cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Tube Pound Cake



2. Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 20 minutes.

3. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9 or 10 inch tube pan.

4. Place pan into cold oven and turn heat to 350ºF.  Bake for 1 hour or until cake tests done.

5. Cool on cake rack for 10 minutes then turn out of pan carefully and place topside down on rack until completely cooled. (At least an hour) Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar if desired.

Grandmother’s Pound Cake

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!
