The Promised Pound Cake Recipe

Hey you Ft. Lauderdale girls! As promised, here is Beth’s go-to pound cake recipe. I pray it blesses you (and your neighbor)!

5 Flavor Pound Cake:

2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 cup Crisco shortening
3 cups sugar
5 eggs, well-beaten
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 tsp. each of vanilla, lemon, almond, coconut and butter flavor extracts

In a mixer, combine butter and Crisco until smooth. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs and mix. In a small bowl, blend together dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and salt. Add in flour mixture, alternately with milk. Mix in extracts. Pour into well greased and floured tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 and 1/2 hours. Let cool completely before you turn it out of the pan. That means you’ll need to make it about four hours in advance of serving. You can put a glaze on it but it doesn’t need it. You can also throw some fresh strawberries or blueberries on it with whipped cream.

      Hey Betty, the butter-flavored Crisco would probably work just fine if that’s what you have! I personally think no one can have too much butter. 🙂

    Can you use almond or coconut flour instead?

      I’d sure be interested to know how your flour substitution works, Sherry! I’m thinking it could be slightly denser than regular flour, but so worth a try!

    Thank you. I know she makes a white cake too and other great dishes. Maybe she should just have a cookbook or should could put a recipe maybe In each book of hers or study book. Food for the body and soul at the same time.
