Almond Pound Cake

This past week when Rick and I were grocery shopping, we picked up a SaraLee Pound cake. It had been years since we had one... and we were both very disappointed in it. It seems to have changed and was dry and tasteless. So today I made this absolutely delicious cake. It's so simple with ingredients that you will probably have on hand.


Almond Pound Cake

Beat well:
1 1/4 c sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp pure almond extract
2/3 c milk

Add:
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 stick melted butter
Mix well and put into a sprayed loaf pan. Place pan on lower oven rack and bake at 350 for 40-50 minutes. Edges must be golden brown. Cool in pan before removing [30-40 minutes] or cake will break if removed too soon.
Variation: Before pouring batter into pan, sprinkle almonds on the bottom.

Enjoy! ♥
