This is Miss Alice Waugh’s recipe that she gave to me. I made this often when we fed the Rotary, Lions or other organizations.

Pound Cake

1 pound butter or margarine

1 pound powdered sugar

6  eggs

3 ¼ cups cake flour

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. orange extract

1 tsp. lemon extract

In a mixer, cream together butter or margarine and powdered sugar.

Add 3 eggs, one at a time and beat well after each.

Add cake flour, beat well.

Add 3 more eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.

Add extracts.

Beat 10 to 12 minutes at medium speed.

Grease a 10-inch bundt pan and dust with flour.

Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

It may take a few minutes longer, depending on your oven.

Cool and remove from pan.

Sometimes I make this cake and put strawberries and whipped cream on top.
