The Recipe Edition

So all day today I wanted to leave work and go to WalMart and buy everything thing on the "bakery" isle. I want to bake this weekend! So I am going through some of my favorite recipes and thought I would share one everyday with my blog friends. I hope you enjoy...these recipes are "southern"!

Classic Pound Cake ( MY FAV)

1 lb. All Purpose Flour (3 1/4 cups)
1 tablespoon Coarse Salt
4 sticks of Unsalted butter
2 cups of Sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
9 large eggs

Preheat oven to 325. Butter two 5X9 loaf pans. Combine flour and salt in a bowl. Cream butter and sugar with a mixer on high until pale and fluffy, for 8 mins. Scrape sides of bowl and reduce speed to Medium. Add vanilla extract. Lightly beat 9 ROOM TEMPERATURE EGGS, add in 4 additions, mixing thoroughly after each and scrape down sides. Reduce speed to low, add flour mixture in four additions, mixing until incorporated. Divide batter between pans.Bake for 65 mins. Let cool on wire rack for 30 min.

I hope you all enjoy. I have been a bad blogger! I haven't blogged since Wednesday- thats uncalled for! Its just been a really busy week for me, but I am making time to blog! I have a lot planned for the weekend. My parents are having a Football party tomorrow night, Alabama will be playing Mississippi State! Then Sunday I think my mom and I are going to hang out, maybe go shopping. I need to get a new purse for New York! I love BIG purses, so I am getting something small to carry the bare essentials! I just am so excited about my trip! My mom called today to tell me that we were going to stay an extra night in NY! So as I am counting down the days I only have 122 days left!

Sorry I went off the deep end. I am hoping that the hubby and I are still going to be able to go to Dallas, Texas for Thanksgiving we are still thinking about it! Well I hope you all have a great night, I am sure I will not be blogging after the party! Ha!
