Pound Cake

Simple cake - old fashioned cake - with ice cream on top, or plain with tea ...

1/2 lb butter

1 t nutmeg

pinch of salt

1 1/2 cup sugar

5 eggs

2 cups cake flour

All the stuff should be at room temperature.

Beat butter for 4 minutes with nutmeg and salt

Gradually blend in sugar, 2 minutes

Beat in 4 eggs, one at a time

Stir in all the flour at once, beat 2 minutes

Blend in last egg, 15 seconds

Place in buttered, floured tube pan

Bake in cold oven, 300F. Bake 1.5 hours

I like this dusted with confectioner's sugar! You could also leave out the nutmeg and add a bit of orange or lemon zest ...
