Classic Pound Cake
This is the first thing I've made with my new KitchenAid mixer.
Martha made this the other day on "Martha Bakes"
I let the eggs and butter come to room temperature as directed.
Creamed the butter
Added the sugar a little at a time.
Cracked 8 eggs and added them one at a time.
Double sifted flour with salt and baking powder.
Added the flour, milk and vanilla.
Makes two large loaves. Into the oven (325) they go for 1 1/2 hours.
Came out beautifully except one ran over a little and made a mess in my oven.
Mine came out a little course. I think I mixed it too long after adding the dry ingredients. Martha warns you not to do that! Sorry Martha!
It tastes good though.
I didn't have any blueberries or strawberries so I just drizzled some homemade strawberry jam over a piece. Yummmm.I love how the mixer works and that you don't have to keep scraping the sides as it mixes.
It's a powerful big thing!!!!
