Southern Living Pound Cake
My sister in law made this
It was beautiful
And one of the BEST cakes I have ever eaten
It is a recipe from the 2006 Southern Living Magazine
It is a must try - you will definitely thank us!
1 1/2 cup butter, softened
1 - 8 oz. package of cream cheese softened
3 cups of sugar
6 large eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.
Combine flour and salt gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in vanilla. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 10 inch tube pan. (bundt)
Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour and 45 minutes - until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan or wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely.
Snowy White Glaze
Stir together - 1, 16 oz. powdered sugar, 5 tbsp milk, and 2 tsp vanilla extract until smooth - spoon evenly over top of cake.
I can't guarantee it will be as beautiful as my sis in laws - but it will be one of the yummiest cake you have ever eaten - promise!
