Classic Buttermilk Pound Cake

Classic Buttermilk Pound Cake

This buttermilk pound cake is a classic – moist, delicious, simple to make and oh so buttery. Plus it’s a great way to use that extra buttermilk.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 eggs, room temperature
