Mmmmmmm...pound cake....Mmmmmmmm

I found this recipe in a magazine over the weekend. Tried it yesterday with strawberries that I got from our produce co-op.....YUM is all I can say!!!

Two Step Pound Cake
(this recipe rquires a heavy-duty electric stand mixer)

4 cups all purpose flour
3 cups sugar
1 lb butter-softened
3/4 cup milk
6 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 325*. Place all ingredients in order in the mixing bowl. Beat at low speed for 1 minute, stopping to scrape down the sides. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into a greased and floured 10" tube pan.
Bake 325* for 1 hour 30 minutes -or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan. Let cool.

I know this is ALOT of butter for a cake...but believe me....this cake is definitely something special....so, why not make it for a special occasion!
