Sara Lee's Pound Cake

1 stick butter
cup sugar
3 eggs
1 C. cake flour
2 T. dry powdered milk
1 T. corn syrup
juice of half a small lemon
tsp. salt
tsp. vanilla
tsp. nutmeg
tsp. mace (optional)

Allow butter to reach room temperature, if you can try
to use unsalted butter. Cream sugar and butter together
until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix
well. Add in flour, powdered milk, and corn syrup. Beat
each in well. Add juice of half a lemon, salt, vanilla,
nutmeg, and mace.
Make sure everything is well blended, and pour into a
greased loaf pan. Bake at 325 for 45 minutes, checking
for done-ness by inserting a toothpick and seeing if it
comes out clean. You almost want to underbake this.
