Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease and flour a fluted tube pan (12 cup).
Cream together the sugar and butter until light. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour and cornstarch. Add half of the flour mixture into the sugar mixture and blend.

For a mix I find Dromedary Pound Cake Mix the very best!

Hi Deebee, the most simple of all pound cakes recipes was given to our group by Jeff Smith who was at the time a TV personality and had his own cooking show.

It's a Colonial Pound Cake and was made by the early
settlers because of its simplicity and fewest ingredients.
It's one of our family favorites too, and when we want
a nice simple plain cake, this works perfectly.

Colonial Pound Cake
2 sticks butter (do not substitute with margarine)
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
1/4 tsp Mace
5 large whole eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Cream butter and sugar...add eggs one at the time and beat
until well combined and the batter is nice and fluffy. Mix flour and mace and add gradually to butter mixture...mixing well. Pour batter into a greased and lightly floured loaf pan.


(standard size) Bake for about 1 1/4 hours or until cake tests done. Ovens vary so keep a close watch and do not over bake.

Cool in pan for 8-10 minutes, then turn out onto wire rack
and allow to cool completely. Dust top with confectioner's
sugar if desired.

This is the cake that we often use instead of biscuits when
serving Strawberry Shortcake. Enjoy. Julia in Orlando, FL

I like the following recipe. It's simple to make and tastes delicious. It so happens I prepared this cake yesterday for company.

1 package Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix
1 package lemon instant pudding mix (4 serving size)
1/2 cup vegetable Oil
1 cup water
4 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend all ingredients in a large bowl; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Bake in a greased and floured tube pan, 10 inch or fluted at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes, until center springs back when touched lightly. Cool right side up in pan for about 25 minutes, then invert onto serving plate.


Glaze: Blend 1 cup confectioners sugar with either 2 tablespoons milk or 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Drizzle over cake.

I don't have a recipe but a tip. After each egg you add to the batter, if you mix for a full minute, the result will be even better. I forgot why this is necessary for a truly great pound cake, but I know it works!
