The Perfect Pound Cake

The Perfect Pound Cake
I got this from Paula Deen's website

All ingredients at room temp!

3 cups granulated sugar
2 sticks softened butter
3 cups cake flour (use regular flour and you’ll be sorry)
8 ounces heavy whipping cream
6 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Directions:
Cream butter and sugar in a mixer.
Add 1 egg at a time.
Add flour and cream, alternating between the two.
Add baking powder.
Add salt.
Add vanilla.

Put in greased and floured “pound cake pan”, you know, the one with the funnel in the middle.

Put in cold oven, middle rack.

Turn oven to 350 and go run errands. Come back in 1 hour and remove. Let cool.
