"I once had a recipe for this cake from the early 1900's but lost it, so I adapted my grandma's pound cake recipe," relates field editor Sue Gronholz from Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons lemon extract
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in pepper and extract. Add eggs, one at a time, beating very well after each addition. Add flour alternately with cream and mix well.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 325° for 70-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar if desired.
