Awesome Pound Cake

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
YIELD: 1 cake




  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Take your standard tube cake pan and oil it with butter. Then lightly flour the oiled pan. Shake the excess flour from the pan and put to the side.
  • Sift the flour, baking soda,and baking powder into a large mixing bowl.
  • Stir in salt and the sugar.
  • Add the butter. Melt the butter in a pan over slow heat to make it blend easier. (You can do this or just let the butter soften at room temperature.).
  • Add the eggs. At this point I break out my mixer and begin mixing on slow.
  • Slowly add buttermilk, and then the vanilla extract. After it is thoroughly stirred, I turn the mixer up to medium for a few minutes, and then finally on high. If the mixture is a little thick I add just a touch more buttermilk.
  • Pour the mix in, and bake the cake for about 1 hour and twenty minutes.
  • Allow the cake to cool 15 or 20 minutes in the pan before removing.
