Recipe: Holiday Pound Cakes- Happy Holidays Everyone!

See Peg's Pound Cake entry for more info.  This recipe will make six small loaf pans.  I cut one lengthwise to show the colors but would normally cut across.  This cake is very good heated for about 10 seconds in the microwave.  Great with a cup of coffee or tea! 
Pound Cake
Ingredients:
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 eggs
Directions: 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 makes a nice hostess gift over the holidays.

I LOVE pound cake! I especially love the colors idea. What fun gifts to make and give. The red could also be Valentine's Day and the green for St. Patrick's day. Fun ideas!

What a treat! I would say that pound cake is one of my all time favorites -- the cake has such a full flavor, and with your lovely additions, I'm sure you've just added the icing to the cake, so to speak. Thank you for sharing this on Tuesday's Boardwalk Bragfest.
