    Judie's Big Pound Cake
    January12,1998

    3 c. sugar
    3 c. flour
    6 eggs
    2 sticks butter (softened)
    1/2 c. shortening
    1 c. milk
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    3 tsp. baking powder

    Place all ingredients in a LARGE bowl .....
    Beat 5 minutes on high speed
    Pour batter into large tube or bunt pan (WELL greased) (OR 1/2 sheet pan)Bake 350 for 45 minutes - 1 hour (until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean)

    Allow to cool in pan until luke warm. Once removed from the pan, I let it sit on a wire rack and cover the whole thing with a heavy towel, till the next day ... This allows the "crunch" to form. If you flip it onto a plate or serving platter right away, the part that *was* the top (open end of pan) can get soggy.
    Dust with powdered sugar

    The pan I prefer to use most often (for a Bundt)is an old Nordic Ware 14 cup capacity, very big & VERY heavy. It was my Grandmothers, I don't even think they make it anymore.

    It fits perfectly in a 1/2 sheet pan.

    As far as the texture ... The best way I can describe it is "velvety" and rich. The top (open end of pan) gets the most delicious crispy little "crunch".

    Very nice I bet the mold you used was made from that cool silcone material, cool stuff I know. Good job.
