Million Dollar Pound Cake

pound cakeI am a slave to my sweet tooth … but sometimes I like something that is not overly sweet to snack on.  This recipe is great when you want a sweet treat that will not be an over-kill on the sugar.  Enjoy!

2 cups butter, softened
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
