Eleanor's Southern-at-Heart Pound Cake

(As featured in A Beauty So Rare, a Belmont Mansion novel, book 2)

Ingredients for Eleanor's Pound Cake:
2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
4 cups plain flour
12 large eggs
2 tsp almond or lemon flavoring

Cream butter and sugar well. Gradually add eggs, one at a time. Then add flour one cup at a time, mixing until smooth. Then add your flavoring preference last. Bake at 325 degrees for one hour (or longer, depending on your oven; I baked mine 1 hr and 15 minutes) until the cake is firm and golden brown. 

Drizzle with a simple powdered sugar glaze or serve plain. And no need to wait until it cools. Warm pound cake is the best!
