This is a moist, rich, dense vanilla pound cake that looks beautiful and tastes heavenly. My family requests it often. The ingredients are simple and basic, and making it is a snap. It really is the ultimate served with strawberries and whipped cream!

  • Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in flour. Beat in eggs one at a time, scraping the bowl after each addition. Pour batter into a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

  • Lift cake out of the loaf pan using the overhanging parchment paper. Place on a wire rack and cool completely before slicing, about 30 minutes.
