Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is from Sarah Berkley.

It's been around about 100 years that I know of. The main difference between this and most pound cake recipes is the addition of mace.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 C butter
1 1/2 C sugar
5 large eggs
2 C flour, sift after measuring
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp mace
1 tsp vanilla


Preheat oven to 350'

Cream shortening and sugar together.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well.

Mix in flour, salt and mace.

Add vanilla and beat thoroughly.

Pour in a loaf pan lined with Reynolds parchment paper.

Bake 60-80 minutes.
