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.
- 1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter
- 1/8 teaspoon ground mace (please be exact)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, or
- 1 whole vanilla bean (do not use both)
- 3 cups sugar
- 7 eggs
- 3 cups cake flour, sifted
- 1 cup heavy cream
Serves / Yields
20 slices (if not greedy), or 2 loaves
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.
