Best Pound Cake Ever

For today's Tasty Tuesday, may I present a Jackie Busbee recipe.  It's the best pound cake I have ever eaten. If you've been here for many Tasty Tuesdays, you already know any Jackie Busbee recipe is going to be a great recipe.

Jackie's secret tips:
  • Don't preheat the oven.
  • The longer you beat it, the better it will be.
  • Don't dump it while it's hot.
Cream together:
  • 2 sticks margarine
  • 1/4 c Crisco
  • 3 c sugar
Add 5 eggs, one at a time, beating thoroughly after each egg.
Alternate 3 c plain flour with 1 c of milk, continually beating.
Add 1 Tbsp. lemon or almond flavoring.  (I always use almond)

Start in a cold oven.  Bake at 325 for 1-1/2 hours

please, what is "Crisco"?

Crisco is a thick white shortening (lard) that we use here in America. Often used instead of butter or animal fat.
