The story goes that pound cake got its name because it was originally made with a pound each of most of its ingredients. We've taken a few "pounds" off these ingredients, but the cake still has the same delicious taste that we remember!

What You'll Need:
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 cup evaporated milk, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
What To Do:
  1. Coat a 10-inch Bundt or tube pan with cooking spray and lightly flour, set aside.
     
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric beater on medium-high speed, beat sugar, butter, and shortening until creamy. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Add 1-1/2 cups flour and 1/2 cup evaporated milk, beating until well blended. Add remaining 1-1/2 cups flour and 1/2 cup evaporated milk, and vanilla, beating until well mixed.
     
  3. Pour batter into pan. Place in a cold oven and bake at 300 degrees F. 1-3/4 to 2 hours, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve, or cover until ready to serve.
Notes

For breakfast, take a few slices and pop them in the toaster. Spread the toasted slices with honey butter, which is no more than a stick of softened butter accented with a couple tablespoons of honey. Or frost with Vanilla Butter Frosting.
