One Half Pound Cake

It's been a while since I have shared a recipe from my Dedication Day Cookbook.  Not sure what made we decide to pull it out today but this half pound cake was the perfect thing to go with my strawberries.
This is a very easy pound cake to whip up.  You probably have everything you need in your pantry.
Start with two sticks of softened butter.
Add 1 1/2 cups sugar
Cream the butter and sugar together.
Alternate between the eggs and flour.  Add 6 eggs.
And add 2 cups plain flour.  Mix well between the eggs and flour.
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Such a pretty batter.  Make sure to scrape down the sides.
Pour into a bundt or tube pan that has been sprayed well or greased and floured. Place in a preheated 325 oven.  Bake for 1 hour then turn off the oven and let sit for 10 minutes.
This is the reason for making the pound cake.  Don't these strawberries look good?  They taste as good as they look.  These are some of the sweetest strawberries I have eaten.  They came from Maggie Valley this week.
I washed and sliced several of them and then sprinkled a little splenda on top and stired them.  Covered then and put in the fridge.
Fresh from the oven.
Invert the cake pan on a serving plate.  If you are lucky it will come out clean.
And this is what we had for dessert.  As Paula says got to add the green.
