Cake for breakfast? Who could possibly turn that down? I clearly remember having this pound cake when I was younger. I actually like it best cold from the fridge…I also like carrots dipped in ketchup, but that’s a whole other story. (hope I didn’t lose all my credibility in that single sentence! )Anyways I miss my pound cake. It’s been too long!Thank goodness Paula Deen is here to save the day! Gosh, I love that lady. I would love to just spend a week with her. One, she’s hilarious. Two, she makes amazing food. Three, she doesn’t judge whatsoever. A killer combo there, folks.Anyways, this is a super easy recipe you can just whip up and watch a few episodes of Modern Family while it’s baking up in the oven.This was made just about 24 hours ago and it’s almost gone…do you think that’s saying something?

3 c. sugar
3 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking powder
1 c. milk
1 t. vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a tube pan.
- Using a large bowl, cream butter. Add sugar, a little at a time. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition. Stir dry ingredients together in a bowl and add to mixer alternately with milk starting with flour and ending with flour. Mix in vanilla.
- Pour into prepared tube pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Let cake cool for 30 minutes, then use a knife to loosen cake from tube pan and flip onto cake dish. Keep lightly covered with plastic wrap.
