Pound Cake

I failed terribly at my attempt to make a layered cake.  Well, failed in the sense of the layers did not turn out pretty.  The cake, however, was super yummy!!!  


  • 2 cups butter
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 3 – 8×4 inch loaf pans, then line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in the flour alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
  3. Pour batter evenly into prepared loaf pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. After removing them from the oven, immediately loosen cake edges with a knife. Allow to cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove from the pans. Strip off the parchment paper and cool completely on wire racks.

I did a lemon glaze, here’s the recipe:
Whisk 2 cups confectioner’s sugar, 1/3 cup lemon juice.  Next, add 1 tbsp water and 2 tbsp melted butter.  Whisk together, poke holes in cake the pour on top and enjoy!

Of course, it’s not so bad if ya turn it around!  LOL.  Any tips on making a layered cake???  My attempt to cut the top to make it straight=bad!
