      I'm always on the lookout for a good/different pound cake recipe, and this one did not let me down! My pound cake was sweet and buttery with a lovely texture that only buttermilk can produce; the cake melts in your mouth. I did not add the chopped pecans or lemon flavoring (some lemon haters in my house). I baked my cake at 325 degrees F for approximately 1hr 10min (1 1/2 hours would have been too long) - check your cake about every 5 minutes after you have baked it for an hour to check for doneness. I baked two pound cakes, and will be defrosting one next week to take to my DD's elementary school for Teacher Appreciation week. Wonderful recipe!

      This was delicious! Great flavor and texture. I might try an almond or orange extract next time just to experiment. We topped ours with fresh strawberries and then a dollop of the following: using room temperature cream cheese, mix equal parts cream cheese and marshmallow fluff with a blender until smooth.

      Left out the lemon, ground the pecans and added to cake batter before baking. Great cake will make again, thanks!
