Grandma Ruby's Buttermilk Pound Cake Recipe
Buttermilk pound cake gets a citrus kick with the addition of lemon extract, creating a rich and moist pound cake you're sure to love!
I used one cup butter instead of shortening. (I don't tend to use shortening and I think the shortening that 'grandma' would have used is much different that the shortening sold today.) Because I used butter I didn't add the butter flavored extract. I also use butter to grease the pan, it makes for a lovely crust. The method as written needs a little help. I don't suggest just adding all the flour, eggs and buttermilk all at once. I creamed the butter & sugar until light and fluffy, added the flavoring. Then added the eggs one at a time, incorporating each egg before adding the next one. Then alternated adding the sifted flour and buttermilk on low speed until combined. The cake had a nice crunchy crust and a tender interior. Excellent for topping with berries or for a trifle. Note to self. When making this recipe, use an angel food cake pan, my bundt cake pan is a little to small and the cake rose over the edge and almost overflowed, which made it difficult to get out of the pan. Thanks for sharing
No changes,and yes I will bake again.
I made a few changes to mine.I used 1 cup unsalted butter ,cut the sugar to 1 cup. I added 1 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons baking powder. Came out very nice still sweet ,but not over powered .texture was great and my 2 mini Dachshund love it as well lol

This recipe is over 100 years old and is the original kind of pound cake: it contains 1 pound each of butter, sugar, eggs and flour and contains no salt, baking powder, or flavoring (but flavoring such as vanilla extract or almond extract can be added if desired!)
