This is my favorite pound cake recipe. My Mother and husband always look forward to me baking this cake. I would have posted a photo, however I failed to wait long enough to take it out of the pan and the top stuck to the pan. Not a pretty sight, but still delicious to eat!
Make certain that butter and eggs are at room temperature.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each.
Combine flour, salt and baking soda; add alternately with buttermilk and beat well.
Pour into a well greased and floured tube or bundt pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle top with confectioners' sugar.
