Best Pound Cake Ever
This delicate and lightly spiced pound cake is one of my family's favorite treats!
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.
