Bertha's Pound Cake

I guess everyone has a lady at church that always makes a "pound cake". Bertha was that person at Dwight Baptist Church. Her pound cake was the BEST! She said her secret was Gold Medal Flour and starting the cake in a cold oven.

1/2 Pound of Margarine
1/2 Pound of Criscoe (either regular or buttered flavor)
3 Cups Sugar
Cream all of the above together.
Then add:
5 Eggs
Mix together in a bowl:
3 Cups Gold Medal Flour (All Purpose)
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
Alternate the flour mixture with
1 Cup Milk with 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Added to it.
Bake at 325 Degrees for about an hour or until a cake tester comes back clean. BE SURE TO START IN A COLD OVEN!!!!!!
This makes a LARGE pound cake. I can make one bundt pan cake and 1 loaf pan (my bundt pan is a small one) or you can make 2 loaf pans.
ENJOY and be sure to let me know how it turns out!!!!!

I have got to try making Bertha's cake! Sounds delicious!

I would also love your support on the ELLE DECOR window that I decorated for the Big Window Challenge this year. As we all know, AT doesn't make it easy, but you can vote TWICE a day. Once online & the other by texting "1" to 89800.

Your support means the world to me!!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

I love pound cake! My mother used to make the best I've ever eaten, but I never got the recipe. I'm going to give this one a try... even though we can't get Gold Medal Flour here in Australia. (another reason why I want to move home to California!)
I'll let you know how it turns out!!
