Sara Lee Pound Cake
Sara Lee Pound cake was one of my first recipes at CopyKat.com, after reading the ingredients on the package, I set out to re-create this famous pound cake just like the original.
- 1/4 pound or 1 stick unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup cake flour
- 2 tablespoons dry powdered milk
- 1 tablespoon corn syrup
- juice of half a small lemon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon mace (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Allow butter to reach room temperature if you can try to use unsalted butter. Cream sugar and butter together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix well. Add in flour, powdered milk, baking powder, and corn syrup. Beat each in well. Add juice of half a lemon, salt, vanilla, nutmeg, and mace. Make sure everything is well blended, and pour into a greased loaf pan 9" x 5" x 2 1/2. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes, checking for done-ness by inserting a toothpick and seeing if it comes out clean. You almost want to under bake this.Print Recipe
