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.

CarolqueI've made this cake 4 or 5 times now and everyone loves it. Easy and delicious!8m ago
DjlyonoAdded 1/3 cup sour cream to moisten2y ago
cookiemonster777This is not an original recipe for a true pound cake. A real pound cake uses a pound of butter,flour,sugar,ect. The flavor is plain with a slight hint of vanilla. You will not taste the butter in this either. Cooking time will destroy this cake!!! I recommend 45-55 minutes in a bundt pan and no more. This cake is beyond dry and unless you have canned peaches or ice cream to save you from embarrassments, definitely make sure it makes it's way to the trash...I wouldn't even allow the birds to suffer!!!3y ago
jojosimmonsLove it. I used lemon extract instead of almond. My kids love it. Will make again.3y ago
mikmakMy family and I love this! But I hate that every time I make this it sticks in the pan. :/3y ago
SujenVery good, but not quite as good as the Elvis Presley Whipping Cream Pound Cake, in my opinion. This cake wasn't quite as moist as I'd like.4y ago
JeanelleMThis 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!!!4y ago
JanisGThis cake turned out wonderful. I love it. The top of the cake is crusty, it is dense like a pound cake should be. I will make this cake again!4y ago
1worstwifeThis was a great cake. I used half the salt since I used "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" Baking blend, but think I could have left it out completely.7y ago
