SOUTHWEST GA POUND CAKE
1 CUP UNSALTED BUTTER
3 CUPS OF SUGAR
6 LARGE EGGS
3 CUPS ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
1/2 TEASPOON BAKING POWDER
1/2 TEASPOON SALT
1 CUP HEAVY CREAM
2 TEASPOON PURE VANILLA EXTRACT (you may use lemon or almond instead. I only have used vanilla.)
DO NOT PREHEAT OVEN!!!!
Generously grease and flour a 10 inch bundt pan.
Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together until fluffy, add the eggs one at a time, beating well between each. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt; alternately add flour mixture and heavy cream to the butter sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour, stir in vanilla.
Pour batter into prepared pan, PUT INTO COLD OVEN and set temperature to 325. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes WITHOUT OPENING THE DOOR (DO NOT PEAK); Bake an additional 15 minutes if necessary.
Remove from oven and cool in pan for 15 minutes, invert cake onto cake plate.
This cake will be so moist. Yes, and cooking without preheating the oven works. I will be honest, I did not think it would come out cooked all the way through and it did.
