I admit it:  I have never made Pound Cake.

I remember a pretty funny standup routine by a woman comedian about sending her husband to the grocery store for ingredients to make Pound Cake because in the South when she needed to take something, she always made a Pound Cake.  And she gives her husband the grocery list, and he brings home everything in extra large.  I knew exactly what she meant because that's been my experience.  But it's cool because sometimes I just don't feel like going to the store.

So for the first time this week, I made a Pound Cake.  If you would like to make a Pound Cake, here's how I did it:


Pound Cake
(Slightly adapted from a recipe shared with me by a friend!)

3 cups sugar
3 sticks of butter (room temperature)
2 Tablespoons of vanilla extract
5 eggs (room temperature)
3 cups flour
3/4 Cup 7-Up

Cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time.  Mix flour one cup at a time alternating with 7-Up.  Beat well.  Pour into prepared bundt cake pan (or tube pan).  Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.  Cool in pan for 20 minutes.
