If you’re on Facebook or Pinterest and could use one of the buttons above I’d surely appreciate it!
I’ve lost count of how many folks have asked for this recipe after I posted a photo of it with Mama’s Custard Sauce last week. I’m on book tour right now so I thought I’d share this phenomemal recipe for Aunt Sue’s Pound Cake with y’all as a bonus. This one appeared in my first cookbook and is truly the best pound cake I have ever tasted. It is an absolute must have at our family Thanksgiving and Christmas and we serve it in thick slices with Mama’s custard sauce poured over it – sublime!
If you don’t have a tube pan, no worries! I make mine in a bundt. It will turn out just as delicious but you will have the delicious crunchy crust on the bottom instead of the top
Normally I show step by step photos of each recipe but since this one is a little bonus, I’m just sharing a final picture and the recipe at the bottom. Scroll down to print it or save it to your recipe box for Thanksgiving.

- 6 eggs
- 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
- 3 cups sugar
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup whipping cream (also known as Heavy Cream)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Grease and flour tube (or bundt) pan and set out eggs and butter to allow them to come to room temperature.
- In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for one minute after each addition. Sift the flour and add it to the creamed mixture alternately with the whipping cream. Mix until fully incorporated.
- Stir in the vanilla.
- Pour into prepared pan and place in a cold oven. Turn the oven to 300 and bake for 80-90 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely before removing from pan.
