Clara’s “Goofy” Pound Cake

on September 25, 2015

It was so funny to find this recipe called “goofy”! Like the clipping says – there’s nothing “goofy” about this recipe. It’s so easy and so good. Clara’s “Goofy” Pound Cake is great for any time of year. In the spring you could drizzle on a rhubarb compote, in the summer you could top it with strawberries or blueberries, in the fall you could top it with caramel sauce and chopped pecans (as I did at the end of this post), and in the winter you could indulge in some hot fudge and peppermint. Yes – pound cake is good ANY time of the year!!!

Clara's Goofy Pound Cake

This is a good one.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Clara’s “Goofy” Pound Cake

Mix together in a large bowl:

2 cups flour

1 Tablespoon baking powder

4 eggs

1/2 pound (2 sticks) margarine (I used butter)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Beat for 10 minutes with an electric mixer.

Pour into a greased tube pan (I had some leak out of the pan and onto the bottom of my oven, so I recommend putting the tube pan on a baking sheet).

Place into a cold oven set at 350 degrees (that means that you put the cake into the cold oven, THEN turn the oven on) and bake for 1 hour.

Cool.

You can find a video that shows you how to get a cake out of a tube pan here.

It makes a nice, silky, smooth batter.

I can never get all of the batter into the pan without getting it all over the pan. It makes such a beautiful cake.

This cake is easy to slice and is so delicious.

For the fall, as mentioned above, this cake is great topped with caramel and chopped pecans. And a bit of whipped cream never hurt, either.

Try this recipe for a very versatile cake. You can take it anywhere and top it with anything!
