Anise Pound Cake


1 Cup butter (2 sticks), softened

1 1/2 Cups sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 Cups milk

4 large eggs

3 Cups unbleached all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 2-ounce bottle anise extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Beat butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and milk slowly, while beating. Mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda together in a separate bowl and then add a little at a time to the liquid mixture. Beat after each addition. Lastly, add the anise extract and beat.

Pour the batter into a bundt pan that has been sprayed with non-stick baking spray and bake for 60 minutes. After removing the cake from the oven, let it sit for 30 minutes before removing it from the pan. Wait until it is fully cooled before cutting.
