Perfection Pound Cake

I actually squee'd when I was at the library the other day and saw they had "Baking from my home to yours" by Dorie Greenspan. As soon as I saw it I snatched it (well as much as you can snatch this large heavy book) off the shelf and new I was going to be doing some baking! My gosh this book has some heavenly recipes. I'll be buying my own copy at Border's very soon hopefully!

I've been craving pound cake so I flipped through and found her recipe for "Perfection Pound Cake" and it was exactly that. Perfection. I cut it into slices and brought some to work because I definitely would eat the whole thing if left at home. That would be a bad bad thing!

Perfection Pound Cake

from Baking from My Home to Yours pg 222

2 cups all purpose flour or 2 1/4 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
4 large eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Note: I am not posting the entire ingredient out of respect for Ms Greenspan's hard work on her cookbook. Since I dont even own a copy of the book yet it wouldnt be right for me to post her recipes for free.
