What a wonderful pound cake recipe. Suggest to anyone trying it that you follow ingredients and instructions exactly as written. Keeps so well and improves with age - probably because of the butter and buttermilk. Thanks bakernurse - it's a winner.
Wonderful dessert! The texture was beautiful, with a soft moist inside & a slight crispness to the crust. I used a springform pan with bundt insert & sprayed it with non-stick spray for baking (no flouring the pan). It baked in the time stated & released easily from the pan. I did have to substitute bread flour for most of the cake flour & I made buttermilk with lemon juice & 2%. The cake is not overly sweet & was a huge hit with my family. I served it with Lemon Dessert Sauce, which is a nice compliment to the pound cake. It indeed made us "Happy". Thanks for posting, BakerNurse! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2008 Pick A Chef.
