Six-Flavor Pound CakeSix-Flavor Pound Cake
“This is the best pound cake recipe of all.”

2 sticks margarine, softened
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. lemon extract
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350°. In mixing bowl, cream the margarine and sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla and lemon extracts. Sift together the spices, flour and salt; add them to the wet ingredients, stirring gently just until well combined.

Pour the batter into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan, then turn out onto a plate.
