Nanny Upstairs Pound Cake

This pound cake recipe is from my Great Grandma Anna. When I was a yound child, my family lived in the lower unit of a duplex home owned by Grandma. Grandma Anna lived upstairs, and became "Nanny Upstaris", a name that stuck for all her 94 years!



1/2 pound butter or crisco
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups flour
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder


Cream butter and sugar.

Combine flour with remaining dry ingredients.

To the creamed butter mixture, alternately add in flour and milk.

Bake 1 1/4 hours at 350 degrees.
