Kathy's Favorite Pound Cake

This is an old favorite at the Duffus household.  It comes by its "pound cake" designation honestly, with a pound of butter almost a pound of eggs and a pound and a half of sugar, it is not a low calorie cake!


Cream together the butter and the sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each. Mix the flour and the baking powder together. Combine the lemon extract, lemon zest, and milk alternately adding the dry and wet ingredients mixing by hand until combined without excess beating.

Pour into a well buttered and floured bundt or tube pan. Bake at 350 degree for 1 hour 15 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out dry. Let cool for 15 minutes on a cooling rack and then turn unto a plate.  Let it cool completely before serving.
