Carolina Butter Pound Cake

3 sticks butter, softened
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
3 cups sifted flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup milk
1 tsp. salt
tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to between 325-350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together until sugar is dissolved. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour and measure. Add baking powder and salt and sift again. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Add extracts.

Pour into greased pans. I've found this recipe will make enough batter for one bundt pan, filled up half way, and one loaf pan. It will also make 3 medium loaf pans. Bake for 50 mins. to one hour. Shorter time for loaf pans, longer for bundt pans, depending on how done you like your cake.
