A Mile High Pound Cake puts me in the mind of a true traditional pound cake. Pound Cakes got their name because there is a pound of each ingredient included in this cake.

These cakes used to be made in large eighteen-cup bundt pants such as the pan used for this recipe as people had really large families “back in the day”.

Lemon juice was added for extra flavor to this cake, but if you want to keep the cake truly traditional, you can leave it out.

If you need an 18-cup bundt pan you can find one here in my Amazon store.

So let’s get into this recipe so I can show you how it’s done!

Steps to make the Mile High Pound Cake:

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition. Mix in the

lemon juice and almond extract just until blended. Add the flour in four equal parts just until blended. Pour your batter into a greased bundt pan.

Place the cake in the oven and set the temperature to 325 degrees.

Bake for 1 hour and a half or until the cake is golden brown. (Insert a wooden toothpick into the center of the cake. The cake is done when the

toothpick comes out clean.) Allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes before inverting it onto a wire rack to complete the cooling process.

I decided to keep this cake truly traditional and omitted adding icing to the cake, but you can always choose to add icing. I just felt it was better to

stick with a “basic cake” for this recipe to allow the recipe to truly stand out. Strawberries and blueberries and also whipped cream are great

additions to this cake.

Enjoy!
