Old Fashioned Pound Cake

This luscious pound cake is made with wholesome, simple ingredients. It is made with fresh home raised eggs and a few other ingredients. The taste is unbeatable, but, one shouldn't eat too much of the good thing. There is a reason it is called a "pound cake", it makes one put on pounds...lol!

3 C. sugar,
3 C. flour,
10 medium eggs,
1-1/2 lb. butter, room temperature,
1-1/2 tsb. vanilla extract,
Optional: zest of 1 lemon and 2 TBSB lemon juice.

Directions: Sift together the sugar and flour. Mix together butter, eggs and vanilla. Gradually add the flour and sugar mixture to the butter and egg mixture. Using the mixing paddle mix the batter at medium speed for about 10 minutes. Pour batter in an Angle Food Pan. Bake at 300F for 1 hr. 30 minutes to 1 hr. 40 minutes, until a knife inserted all the way comes out clean.
