Grandma's Pound Cake
After making more of these pound cakes than I can count over the holidays, I've decided to share this fabulous recipe. This is my grandmother's, and it definitely packs on the pounds! Don't leave this lying around your house, because you will eat it all! I also decorate the top with colored sugars depending on the holiday or event.
Do not use a Bundt(R) pan for this, the cake won't bake evenly.
If your ingredients are not at room temperature, the batter will curdle if mixing warm with cold. So make sure everything has sat out for at least a half hour.
If you have trouble getting the cake out of the pan, set it over a burner for a couple seconds to heat up the fats at the bottom and sides. Give it a few taps and it should pop right out. I always run a knife as close as I can on the inside of the pan to help ease it out.
