Mom's Pound Cake

My Mom always said this was a great recipe because "All you do is throw everything into a bowl and mix it up." It's not too sweet and goes perfectly with a nice cup of coffee. Always hits the spot!

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup butter
4 eggs
3/4 milk
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Place all ingredients in mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed for 5 minutes. Pour batter into greased and floured tube pan. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly tapped or an inserted tooth pick comes out clean.

As always, I only use pure vanilla extract, especially when vanilla is the key flavor. Another great tip comes from Aunt Marie, my Mom's sister. She always said to double the amount of vanilla whenever you bake a cake because that extra bit of liquid makes the cake extra moist. She's right, ya know.
