Tales of a Georgia Peach!

Friday, December 28, 2007

I got a really good cook book for Christmas from my husbands Aunt Kathy, Stirring Performances. I made a blueberry pound cake yesterday. It was so good.

Blueberry Pound Cake
1 pint blueberries
3 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter, softened
2 c sugar
4 eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 325. Toss berries with 1/4 c of the flour and set aside. Sift remaining flour with baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and veat until fluffy. Fold dry ingredients into batter until well blended. Gently stir in berries. Turn into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes, until cake tests done. Cool cake in pan for 10 minutes before turning onto cooling rack.
