Crusty Pound Cake
This is the best pound cake I have ever tasted. I often make it as a gift to others and it is unfailingly met with raves of approval (and requests for the recipe)! The slightly crispy crust is a nice counterpoint to the rich, moist cake and the almond extract gives a wonderful, rich flavor."This was my first time ever baking a cake from scratch and it was easy and delicious!!! I added a little lemon extract as well...was eaten up in less than 2 days!!!" - JeanelleM

Crusty Pound Cake Preparation
Cream butter well in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar gradually, mixing until texture is fine and mealy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add flavorings. Combine flour and salt; stir flour mixture into batter, beating until flour is moistened. Do not overbeat. Pour into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. Bake at 325 for 1 hour and 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean and cake shrinks slightly from sides of pan. Cool in pan 15 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack; turn right side up and complete cooling. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar for decoration, if desired.
