Mom's Buttermilk Walnut Pound Cake


Lucille Hoerle Recipe

By Lucille Hoerle

Obviously this was my mom's recipe and I am so happy that I was able to get this recipe before she passed away. It reminds me so much of her when I make it.

It is not very rich and has a delicate taste but a hardy crumb. I love this pound cake especially being able to post it on National Pound Cake Day in her memory.
