Best Pound Cake Ever


This delicate and lightly spiced pound cake is one of my family's favorite treats!













1 cup butter
4 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 325℉ (160℃).

Bring butter and eggs to room temperature.

In a mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and nutmeg.

In another bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds.

Gradually add sugar to butter, 2 tablespoon at a time, beating on medium to high speed about 6 minutes total or until very light and fluffy.

Add vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beating 1 minute after each addition, scraping bowl often.

Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating on low to medium speed just until combined.

Pour batter into a greased and floured 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.

Bake in a 325℉ (160℃) oven for 55 to 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

Remove cake from pan.

Cool thoroughly on a wire rack.

Drizzle your favourite icing or glaze, and top with fresh berries if desired.
