How to Make Buttermilk Pound Cake


  • 1Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine flour, soda and salt; set aside. Spray a tube pan with cooking spray with flour. In large bowl, cream butter, shortening, sugar and extracts. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add buttermilk alternately with flour mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 90 minutes. DO NOT open the oven door until after 1 hour. Insert toothpick near center of pan and if it comes out clean it's done. Also, the cake should pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Place cake on cooling rack. Cool completely.

    The cake was perfect after baking 90 minutes.

    To cool the cake, I inverted it on a perforated pizza
    pan. Then placed the pizza pan on a cooling rack.

    For a different variation, substitute your favorite flavorings for the extracts.
