3 Egg Pound Cake

4 oz butter
7 oz sugar
3 eggs
8 oz flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 oz milk
1/2 cup raisins, chopped
1 teaspoon lemon zest

In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated.

Fold in the flour mixture and milk, stirring until mixture becomes a wet batter.  Stir in raisins and lemon zest.

Pour batter into a loaf pan and bake for about 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
