Yummy, I love pound cake, you are in for a treat, lets make a grocery list You will need about 3 1/2 cups of flour 1 teaspoon baking soda, teaspoon of salt 2 cups of sugar 3 cups of butter or margarine which ever you prefer 5 eggs 1 cup of evaporated milk. You may want to add a little something extra some nuts or whatever you like. Then put everything in a bowl except for the milk blend it up good on low to remove any lumps. Then mix in the milk once you get it all mixed up good pour it in a loaf pan. bake for about and hour poke it with a tooth pick, if it comes out clean then your cake is ready, let cool for about twenty minutes. You can eat it like that or to make it really sinful. Driddle something really sweet on top.
