This is my own recipe for pound cake. In this recipe, I use three different kinds of sugar and a lot of vanilla extract. It tastes good fresh and hot and also is good the day after.

  • In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar, confectioners sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Add egg whites and egg yolks, beating after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients alternately with the milk. Divide the batter evenly between the two pans.

  • Bake for 60 to 70 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Thanks for the recipe! I was looking for something quick and easy to whip up to take over to my parents house as a dessert when served with strawberries cream and ice-cream it was a hit! Didn't taste like those artificial pound cakes that you buy at the store (with that really rich/sweet taste) - just right!!! Read More
