Remember the good ole days? Saturday morning cartoons? That was the theme for this date. We dressed in our pj’s, enjoyed a variety of breakfast cereals and lemon pound cake while settling in and watching the good ole cartoons like Looney Tunes, Ducktales, Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers, and the Batman animated series. Life doesn’t get much better! Here is the recipe for lemon pound cake (yumm!):
2 squares butter or margarine 2 cups sugar
3 eggs 3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder ½ teaspoon salt
1 can evaporated milk 2 ½ teaspoons almond or lemon
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat eggs in one at a time and mix well. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Add alternately with evaporated milk. Stir in flavoring. Beat until well mixed and light. Pour into greased and lightly floured bundt cake pan, 10-inch tube pan, or 2-3 bread pans. Bake in 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until cake tests done. Allow to stand 10 minutes after taken from oven, then turn out of pan. Serve with fresh fruit, strawberries, bananas, etc. and whipped sweetened cream or sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar and serve plain.
