How To Make an Old-Fashioned Pound Cake

Old-Fashioned Pound Cake Recipe

I love looking through my Grandmother’s recipes. She LOVED to bake and had recipes for almost any type of cake, cookie, or pie that you could imagine. I recently had a conversation with a friend looking for an old-fashioned pound cake recipe and thought, I’m sure my grandmother has one. And sure enough… She does. 

Recipe…50 to 80 years old…

Well, before I share this recipe, let me warn you that she called it “Old Fashioned” which means that it is probably between 50 to 80 years old. It is handwritten on a piece of tablet paper which has yellowed from age. 

The recipe itself calls for Oleo. Oleo isn’t an ingredient used in today’s cakes. So, to share the definition…

Oleo is margarine…

Oleo is margarine made from vegetable oil. However, it is common for bakers to replace butter or oleo. See the following substitution from cooksrecipes.com 

Now, to share the recipe!

Old-Fashioned Pound Cake Recipe

  • 2 sticks of Oleo
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups flour (not self-rising)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup Crisco
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix Ingredients together thoroughly. Pour batter into a greased and floured tube or Bundt pan, and bake at 350 for 1 hour.

That’s it!
