Why I Love This Recipe

I've always enjoyed fresh strawberries with a slice of poundcake, but had never baked one. This recipe is old....found in a cookbook published back in 1948. The interesting part about poundcake is the ingredients...a pound of everything....thus the name.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb butter
1 lb sifted cake flour
10 eggs, separated (which equals a pound)
1 lb sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla


Directions

Preheat oven to 325' F


Cream the butter. Work in the flour until mixture is mealy.


In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks, sugar and vanilla until thick in fluffy.


Add butter mixture to the egg mixture gradually, beating thoroughly. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold egg whites into butter mixture. Beat vigorously 5 minutes.


Prepare 2 loaf pans by lining them with parchment paper. Bake for 1 1/4 hours.
