I got this one from a neighbor. Moist, tender and a flavorful poundcake. So good with ice cream. Please use real butter because it makes a great difference in the flavor.

I agree this is a really moist cake but it is also the recipe I use for lemon bread. Highly recommended and indeed only use butter.
