Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling

This was my grandmother's favorite cake to make. My mother made it a lot, too, and now I do. It can be sliced thin and topped with strawberries (or any fruit) and whipped cream for a super dessert.

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2-3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream

Directions

  1. In a bowl, beat eggs at high speed for 5 minutes or until pale yellow. Gradually beat in sugar and vanilla, mixing until sugar is dissolved. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to batter alternately with cream. Pour into a greased 10-in. tube pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
