very Christmas season with red and green swirled throughout. This particular loaf was made today by my daughter and looks delicious! The tradition continues....
2 sticks butter (1/2 lb)
3 cups sugar
4 cups flour, sifted 3X ( I stir with a whisk instead)
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tsps. baking powder
1 cup milk
2 tsps. vanilla
6 eggsDirections: Add dry ingredients together and sift 3X. Add to creamed butter alternately with milk. Add vanilla. Add one egg at a time. Beat well. Pour into prepared loaf pans. (Spray with Pam and line across long sides with wax paper)
Bake in a 350' oven for 50-60 minutes depending on size of pan. Test with cake tester for doneness. The top of the cake will be tan when done.
Note: I tint some of the batter red and green - about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of each color (Christmas), orange (Halloween) etc. for a marble effect. Return tinted batter to pan and swirl with a knife in a figure "8". This cake also freezes well and is tasty when warmed in the microwave.
