Holiday Pound Cake Notes

This is a favorite of myself and family, especially for the holidays. Due to its richness and fat content we only allow ourselves this decadent treat a few times a year. The recipe is listed as a favorite of Elvis's for many years and as per the listed ingredients you can see why. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Serves / Yields

20 slices (if not greedy), or 2 loaves

Preparation Instructions

Beat together butter, mace, salt, baking powder and vanilla. Gradually add sugar, beat 5 minutes. Incorporate eggs, one at a time, add 1/2 the flour, stir slowly. Add cream slowly, mix, then add balance of flour just until smooth. Divide into two loaf pans or a large bundt cake pan.

Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

NOTE: be careful on the mace measurement, just a little too much can ruin this tasty treat.
