Sara Lee Pound Cake

1/4 pound or 1 stick unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 cup cake flour
2 tablespoons  dry powdered milk
1 tablespoon corn syrup
juice of half a small lemon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon mace (optional)

Allow butter to reach room temperature, if you can try to use unsalted butter. Cream sugar and butter together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix well. Add in flour, powdered milk, and corn syrup. Beat each in well. Add juice of half a lemon, salt, vanilla, nutmeg, and mace. Make sure everything is well blended, and pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes, checking done by inserting a toothpick and seeing if it comes out clean. You almost want to under bake this.

This was my daughter’s favorite cake growing up…bought cake that is.
Her most favorite was me making her a homemade “Mississippi Mud” cake.
