Two Words: Pound Cake

This recipe comes from The Pioneer Woman's website. If you have never ventured into her world, you need to!  Among her stash of great recipes, lies this pound cake. It is so moist and delicious, but icing on the cake is it is a one bowler. You must try this cake, you will not be disappointed.

3 sticks of butter (room temperature works best)
3 cups of sugar
5 eggs
1 teaspoon butter flavoring
2 teaspoons lemon flavoring
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup Sprite

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix your butter with one cup of sugar at a time, mixing well after each cup. Same with the eggs, add one at a time, mixing well after each egg. Add your flavorings. Add your flour a cup at a time, mixing well after each cup. At this point your batter will be on the thick side, add your cup of Sprite and mix. Scrap sides and mix again. Pour into a well greased bundt pan or sometimes I use regular bread pans to make several smaller cakes. Bake for 1 hour to an 1 hour and 10 minutes, until it is firm. Invert and let cool. Thanks to The Pioneer Woman, we now have the best pound cake ever!
