If you really have no other cake recipes that you can remember- memorise this one! This means that you have no excuse to go anywhere without a cake. And no-one should go anywhere without cake. Add a few blackberries and this simple cake gets a delicious, fruity boost.
Classic Pound Cake
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.
