Fluffy poundcake with a powdered sugar glaze

This is pound cake is my husband's grandma's recipe, (did you get that?!), and it sure is good! I LOVE the fluffy batter!

Poundcake with a powdered sugar glaze

What to get:
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 cup Crisco
5 eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt

What to do:
Cream sugar and crisco together. Add eggs, one at a time, then vanilla. Add the flour and ¼ and Salt. Mix until well combined and fluffy!

Flour (not with cooking spray, with flour) a bundt pan, and pour. Bake at 300 for 60 minutes.

Powdered sugar glaze

Mix 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and
2 tablespoons milk. You may need to add more milk, a bit at a time, until it is thin enough to drizzle over a cake.

Allow the cake to completely cool, the drizzle the glaze over the cake. It gets a bit messy, so I just wipe up with a paper towl when I'm done. Allow glaze to completely cool; 1-2 hours.

  5. WOW! My grandmother, a wonderul Southern cook, used to make THE best pound cake. I've never even attmepted a pound cake. Guess I thought I didn't get the baking gene. I might just have to try this one. :) Thanks so much for stopping by Staying Home and Staying Sane and joining in the discussion!
