I've tried so many other Buttermilk lemon pound cake recipes they all turn out dry as a bone so I made quite a few modifications about 10 years ago and now this recipe has been used in my family, and its highly requested by friends, and co-wokers..

Real butter, pudding and egg white are crucial to the moisture, do not substitute..
