ISO: Old Recipe for Pound Cake

Sandra Greathouse | Feb 14, 200509:45 AM

Hello...I'm hoping someone might beable to help me with an old (Washington Post) recipe that I've been searching for. It was printed in the Washington Post between 1952 and 1956, and was submitted by someone from Roanoke, VA. The cake only contains 1 pound real butter, flour, eggs, sugar, salt and maybe flavoring.
No other liquid is used in the recipe! You start it in a cold oven, then bake for certain time and temperature, then cake remains in the oven until its cold, an hour or more. You do not peek at the cake during baking.

I know this is asking for nearly the impossible, but if anyone is an obsessive recipe collector like me, then maybe you might have inherited your Mom's or Grandma's old recipes and you remember this cake. I would be so grateful if I can get help finding this recipe.

Thank you,
Sandra Greathouse
