This is an old-fashioned favorite, a cold oven pound cake, and it is really very easy to prepare and bake. Do not preheat the oven for this cake.
- 1/2 pound butter (2 sticks)
- 2 1/2 cups sugar (granulated)
- 6 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour (13 1/2 ounces)
- 1 cup heavy cream
Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, then add vanilla.
Add flour in four parts, alternating with the heavy cream and mixing after each addition.
Grease and flour a large tube pan. Spoon in the batter.
Place the cake in a cold oven. Turn oven to 325 F and cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 25 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the cake should come out clean.
Cool in the pan for 20 minutes, then remove to cool completely.
