Kentucky Blue Ribbon All-Butter Pound Cake

Taylor Piercefield

"This is the recipe my Grandmother would make every year during the holidays. I found the recipe tucked in her Bible when she passed, and it was written in her Grandmother's handwriting. It's been in my family for at least 7 generations, and in 2012, I won a Blue Ribbon at the Kentucky State fair by following her exact instructions. Tastes like pure love!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a tube pan with some butter and dust lightly with flour.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

This is a very good recipe. One to surely be a family tradition. I did cut the sugar back to 2 1/2 cups vs. 3. Other than that, it’s perfect. Thank you for sharing this now to be our family favo...
