Pound Cake

Here is a recipe that is very good!! A friend of my parents, gave this recipe to my mom. Connie and her husband, Joe, were quite the pair. Everyone who knew them must have enjoyed their company. Whenever they visited, there was always laughter. Especially if we went to the local drive-in theater swapmeet. Of my gosh, they knew how to get bargains! I also enjoyed their New York accents!
I also had some chocolate ganache leftover from another cake, so I dribbled it over this one. I made this cake for my youngest daughter's 21st birthday, even though she is not here. She and her husband are spending the day at Disneyland. Me and the grandchildren enjoyed the cake!
So here's to Connie and Joe!

Pound Cake

Cream together: ½ pound butter (2 sticks) and ½ pound cream cheese (8 ounce package).

Beat in 6 eggs, one at a time.

Then add 2 cups sugar and beat well.

Finally add 2 cups self rising flour and 2 teaspoons vanilla (or almond or lemon extract)

Mix all together until well blended.

Put into a well greased and flour tube pan or bundt pan.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 ˚F for 50-60 minutes.

Cool for 10 minutes and turn over onto a cake plate, frost if desired or dust with powered sugar.

Here's a piece for you

and one for me! Enjoy!

Just added this recipe to a new blog site:
