Baking With Martha

I got this Pound cake recipe watching  a cooking show, ' Martha Bakes' which was telecasted on one of the popular Arab Cooking Channel .And The host,chef,baker and demonstrator was none other than Martha Stewart.She called this cake the American pound cake.Like she said on television,this was absolutely delicious.And the aroma was irresistible.It was worth the try.

American pound Cake 
4 cups flour
3 sticks butter
2 3/4 cups sugar
8 eggs
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1 cup milk


Cream the butter ( it's easy if you use the electric mixer) Add the sugar.Once both these ingredients come to a very creamy consistence,alternatively fold in the the eggs and the flour ( the baking powder should be mixed in with the flour).Then add the vanilla flavoring and the milk.Gently fold one more time before  pouring the batter into loaf trays.(This quantity  can be poured into two loaf trays) .Bake in an hot oven for about an  hour.
