    Well actually a 3/4lb cake :D

    I got a deal on eggs last month at $1/dzn, so I
    decided to make a pound cake or 2.
    I've made so many now I've got the recipe memorized.

    It's pretty decent to me, and fairly easy....

    6 - large eggs
    3/4 cup milk
    1 - tsp lemon extract
    1 - tsp vanilla extract
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup self rising flour
    2 cups plain flour
    1 cup crisco (melted)

    mix in that order until creamy
    Bake in a tube pan ~1 hour

    lol, my first attempt at a pound cake, and I was going to try an old
    family recipe my late great aunt had.
    It called for a dozen eggs, and a pound of flour (~4 cups)...

    I used self-rising flour instead of plain.
    That sucker went ape-crap.
    Took me a while to clean the oven.

    yeah, I think a lot of recipes use the term loosely, or so it seems.
