    Default Pound Cake Loaf

    Pound Cake Loaf

    1/2 cup Butter, softened
    1/4 cup Shortening
    11/2 cups Sugar
    3 Eggs
    1 1/2 cups sifted Cake Flour
    1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
    pinch of salt
    1/2 cup Milk
    1/4 teaspoon Almond Extract

    1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

    In a mixing bowl cream butter and shortening; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating mixture after each addition. In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt; add this to the creamed mixture. Mix well. Add in milk and with an electric mixer beat for 5 minutes on medium speed. Stir in extracts. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9 x 5 x 3 inch loafpan. Bake at 325 degree F for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes; remove and let cool completely on a wire rack.

    Enjoy! Thanks; Virginia

    If you don't have Cake Flour but do have All-Purpose Flour and Cornstarch here is a substitute for you.

    1 cup of All-Purpose Flour minus 2 Tablespoons plus 2 Tablespoons of Cornstarch is a substitute for Cake Flour.

    The easiest way to do this substitution is to put 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch in the bottom of a 1-cup measuring cup, then fill the cup as usual with all-purpose flour and level top. Sift 3 times. (This 1 cup equals 1 cup of sifted cake flour.) And for 1/2 cup of cake flour, put 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch in bottom of a 1/2 cup measuring cup, then fill, level the top and sift. (This 1/2 cup equals 1/2 cup of sifted cake flour.)


    Just a note: If your recipe calls for sifted flour (as this one does) this means you sift the flour before measuring. [You don't have to re-sift the substitution as it is already sifted for you.] However, if the recipe calls for flour, sifted this means you sift the flour after measuring.



    Hope this helps! Thanks; Virginia
