Pound Cake Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
  2. 2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for pan
  3. 1 cup sugar
  4. 4 large eggs
  5. 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 6-cup (8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch) loaf pan; set aside.
  2. Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; add vanilla and salt. With mixer on low, gradually add flour, beating just until combined (do not overmix).
  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, about 1 hour (tent with aluminum foil if browning too quickly). Let cool in pan 15 minutes. Invert onto a wire rack, and turn upright to cool completely.

Serves 8.
