Very buttery and yummy! Great flavor. I didn't have any buttermilk on hand, and substituted with 1 Cup of Milk mixed with 1 TBSP of lemon juice. My only complaint was that I baked it for the 1 1/2 hours, and when I went to remove it, raw batter came out of the middle. I had to put it back in the loaf pan and bake for another 1/2 hour.

Lovely buttery pound cake with a dense texture. I think the buttermilk makes a big difference to the texture as compared to those pound cakes made with milk. I've made this recipe 3 times with the last cake being shared by coaches, refs, college scouts, etc. at a school sponsored basketball tournament at my daughter's high school - many compliments on the cake. Thanks for sharing!
