Pound Cake

Roasted Pineapple

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Generously coat a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  3. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy on medium-high speed. Reduce speed to medium add eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Add vanilla and salt. With mixer on low gradually add flour and mix just until combined.
  4. Spoon into loaf pan and bake for about an hour or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. 
  5. Allow to cool in pan for 20 minutes, remove and cool completely.
