happy birthday america

The 4th of July is almost here!
In case you need to come up with an easy but delicious dessert to take to a picnic, I'm sharing my mom's pound cake recipe.
Not only is it delicious and easy...
it actually tastes even better after a day or two.
That means you can make it ahead of time!
Almond Pound Cake
5 eggs
2 ½ cups sugar
1 stick margarine softened
1 cup Crisco
2 teaspoons almond extract
1 cup milk
3 cups flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat together the first 5 ingredients in a mixing bowl on medium speed.
Mix flour, salt and baking powder in a separate bowl.
In the mixing bowl, alternate ¼ cup milk to ¼ cup dry mix until all of the ingredients are incorporated and thoroughly mixed.
Pour batter into a well-greased and floured cake pan.
Place the pan on the middle oven rack and bake for one hour.

Thank you mom for sharing your recipes with me!
Happy Birthday America...
