7 egg Pound Cake

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups shortening
  • 7 eggs 
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 t. almond flavoring
  • 1/2 t. butter flavoring

Instructions

  1. Cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour alternately with milk, starting and ending with flour. Vanilla goes in last. Bake at 325 until it tests done. 1 1/2 hours.
  2. This pound cake takes a while to bake because it is quite dense. I have found that an 11X15 pan holds two runs of this batter and bakes in 1 hr 20 min.
