Perfect ​Pound Cake: This Recipe Is So Easy It Almost Bakes Itself!

If you didn't have to grease and flour the tube pan, this pound cake recipe would be two steps. Amazing, huh? 

You'll need:

  • 4 cups flour
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 4 sticks butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Grease and flour a tube pan. Set aside.
  2. Put all ingredients in the large mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on low speed for about 1 minute to incorporate all the ingredients, then beat on medium speed about 2 minutes more.
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in a preheated 325-degree F oven for 1 1/2 hours or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing. Cool completely. 

Great served with fresh fruit and whipped cream.
