Elvis Presley Poundcake (Contra Costa Times, 09/19/2007)

Makes 2 loaf cakes, 20 servings

3 cups sugar

2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened

7 eggs, at room temperature

3 cups cake flour, sifted twice

1 cup whipping cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the sugar and butter in bowl of electric mixer; beat on medium speed until creamy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in 11/2 cups of the flour; add whipping cream. Beat in remaining flour and vanilla.

2. Pour batter into two buttered and floured 81/2-by-41/2-inch loaf pans. Bake until golden and a tester inserted in the center of cakes comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
