Pound Cake

This pound cake recipe was given to Nannie by a good friend. The friend had gotten the recipe from her mother (Mrs. Munroe). As little girls, Marilyn and I would go with Nannie to visit Mrs. Munroe. She lived in a neat house south of town. So..... this is an oldie and has endured the test of time for sure! Make this moist cake; it's good for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

3 c. sugar
3 c. flour
1 c. Crisco
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. soda
6 eggs, separated
1 c. buttermilk
1 t. vanilla

Cream the Crisco and sugar together; alternate adding egg yolks and dry ingredients with buttermilk. Fold in stiffen beaten egg whites.

Bake at 350 degrees for 65-75 minutes. It just depends on the cook's oven!

  1. OOOH--Love this cake. I agree it's good for any meal...my favorite way to serve it is with fresh straberries and whipped cream.
