LEMON BUTTERMILK POUND CAKE

Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake is a classic pound cake recipe with the addition of fresh lemon! Buttermilk gives this Lemon Pound Cake a wonderful texture and everyone loves the bright flavor of the lemon glaze. It’s the perfect buttermilk pound cake recipe!

Lemon Buttermilk Pound Cake is one of the most incredible lemon cakes I have ever tried!  I served it with sliced sweetened strawberries on top and everyone raved – even my husband who doesn’t quite share my fondness for lemon desserts. It is gorgeous too, especially if you make it in a bundt pan as shown in the pictures.

How to make Lemon Pound Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a bundt cake pan. (I’ve also made pound cake in a bread pan and it turned out beautifully! It needs to be a large one like this Norpro 12″ Bread pan though.)
  2. Beat white sugar and 1 1/2 cups butter together in a bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, thoroughly beating each egg into the butter mixture before adding the next.
