Old Fashioned Blue Ribbon Pound Cake Recipes


Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter, no substitutes
  • 3 and 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 10 large eggs
  • 4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Allow butter and eggs to come to room temperature.
  2. Grease and flour a tube or bundt pan. You may need to line the sides of the tube pan with waxed paper so that is above the top of the pan 2 to 3 inches. This is a very tall cake.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Cream 2 cups butter until soft and there are no lumps.
  5. Add 3 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar and cream until light and fluffy.
  6. Add one at a time, beating until just mixed in before adding the next egg.
  7. Lower speed on mixer to low and slowly add 4 cups sifted all-purpose flour.
  8. Add vanilla and mix in completely.
  9. Spoon batter into prepared tube or bundt pan. (If using a bundt pan, make sure it's large enough for batter to double in size.)
  10. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and 20 minutes.
  11. *PLEASE NOTE - COOKING TIMES VARY DEPENDING ON IF YOUR OVEN IS CALIBRATED AND IF YOU USE A LIGHT OR DARK PAN. TEST THE CAKE BEFORE THE RECOMMENDED TIME. IF THE CAKE IS TOO DRY, YOU BAKED IT TOO LONG.
  12. Test for doneness with a wooden pick. Insert pick in the center of the cake, if pick comes out clean or with dry crumbs, it is done.
  13. Remove cake and allow to cool on a wire rack 30 minutes before inverting onto a serving platter.
  14. The recipe is correct as written. There are no baking soda or baking powder in it.
