Elvis Presley's Favorite Pound Cake

This is the best pound cake we have ever tasted. Its tender appeal is owed in part to cake flour and cream, and in part to beating the batter an extra 5 minutes.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened, plus additional for buttering pan
  • 3 cups sifted cake flour (not self-rising; sift before measuring) plus additional for dusting
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 7 large eggs, at room temperature 30 minutes
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Special Equipment
  • a 10-inch tube pan (4 1/2 inches deep; not with a removable bottom) or a 10-inch bundt pan (3 1/4 inches deep; 3-qt capacity)
