Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided

PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease 9-inch (10-cup) tube pan and flour with 3 tablespoons flour.

SIFT remaining 2 1/2 cups flour, baking powder and salt into medium bowl. Beat butter in large mixer bowl until creamy.
