Vanilla Pound Cake

HI all!
I'm getting so behind in blogging and blog reading. If I haven't visited you lately I promise I'll get there soon!

This past Friday and Saturday I had a yard sale so that kept me pretty busy last week as I was getting ready for it. Sunday was spent trying to catch up on cleaning and laundry. 
Monday was wasted (not really) on resting up and reading. I spent most of the day propped up on a pillow reading a good book.
That brings me to today which is when I baked the yummy cake above. It was super easy to make and oh so yummy topped with strawberries and whipped topping.
I planned on taking a picture with the strawberries and all but didn't get that done before we gobbled it all up.

Vanilla Pound Cake

3 sticks butter (real butter at room temperature)
3 cups sugar
6 eggs (at room temperature)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup milk ( I used 2 %)
1 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract

Grease and flour a bundt pan.
Cream butter and sugar.
Add eggs one at a time.
Alternately add the flour and milk.
Add vanilla.
Pour into pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then invert onto a cooling rack.

Once I got the cake baked I headed outdoors to do a little weeding in my flower bed. Shortly after I finished pulling the weeds I noticed this little bunny hopping around near the edge of my garden. 
He was so cute!
Thankfully he crossed through the fence to the neighbors yard because if my dogs find him out there I'm afraid to think of what they would do to him.

YUM YUM! We just recently finished off a lemon sour cream pound cake.
Your bunny is cute and looks like the one that's been hanging around our yard lately. I love their cute white cotton tails.

God Bless~

Regular white flour is what I used!

Debbie said...

Thanks Jessica, I was wondering as there isn't any baking powder or salt or baking soda in the recipe. I will give this a try next week. Looks great!!! Again Thanks so much!!!

God Bless~
