This made a very nice pound cake. I added the egg yolks one at a time to the creamed butter/sugar mixture, then mixed in the combined flour/baking soda, alternatley with the buttermilk. It was best served the following day, Sitting overnight improved the fluffy, moist, texture and nice, vanilla flavour. I frosted this cake with a caramel icing and we really enjoyed it !!
