Grandma's poundcake

What you need (1 loaf)
- 200g self-raising flour
- 200g white caster sugar
- 200g butter (room temperature)
- 4 eggs
- 1 packet vanilla sugar
- pinch of salt

Cream the sugar and butter with a handmixer. Add 1 egg at time and mix until incorporated before adding the next egg. Sift the flower, salt and vanilla sugar in a separate bowl and gradually add to the butter mixture. Mix at high speed until the batter looks white and creamy.
Preheat the oven at 200C. Grease a loaf tin and pour in the mixture. Bake for approx. 60mins, until an inserted knife comes out clean.

Or try this:
- make cupcakes instead of a loaf. Bake for approx. 30 mins.
- mix cocoa powder through (half) the batter to make a chocolate or marble loaf.
- top the batter with apple slices mixed with cinnamon.
