Madiera Cake, Pound Cake or Butter Cake

 I saw a lobster roll cake in the Food Network magazine and it didn't have a recipe for the pound cake that they used. They used a pre-made pound cake which doesn't work for us since we are gluten free. I went through a couple of my cook books and thought hey I can do this gluten free no problem. I wanted to test the recipe first before my husband's birthday. I will post the lobster roll cake recipe when I make it in September for his birthday. In the meantime enjoy this awesome pound cake recipe.

8oz (225g) flour
1tsp baking powder
8oz (225g) unsalted butter at room temp
8oz (225g) sugar

1tsp vanilla ( I didn't have vanilla and used almond extract 1/4 tsp)
4 eggs

1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees and place parchment paper on the bottom of a loaf pan.
2) Sift the flour and baking powder into a small bowl and set aside.
3) Place unsalted butter in your mixer and add your sugar 2Tbs at a time until combined light and fluffy and add vanilla.
4) Add one egg at a time to your butter mixture beating an additional 1 min after each egg is added.
5) Add the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
6) Pour your mixture into your lined loaf pan and bake for about 1-1 1/4hrs until toothpick comes out clean. The outside will be a nice golden brown.
7) Let cool on a wire rack for about 10 min and then remove from loaf pan and let cool completely.
