Classic Pound Cake


400g flour

400g sugar

400g butter

4 eggs

Few tablespoons of icing sugar (optional)


Preheat the oven to 170 degrees.

Beat the sugar and butter until pale and creamy. Add the eggs in one at a time, betting well after each addition. Sift the flour into the batter and mix until just combined.

Pour into a greased 20cm deep cake tin. Bake for 45minutes or until golden and a skewer comes out clean.

Dust with icing sugar and serve with blackberries and a dollop of thick cream.
