1 lb butter
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
3-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup buttermilk


Grease and flour tube pan.

Cream butter and sugar well. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one. Then add the dry ingredients one at a time, mixing in a third of the buttermilk after each one.

Bake in tube pan at 350 F for one hour and 25 min.

It is imporant to beat very well when it says to beat. The beating is how the cake rises. When it says add the dry ingredients one at a time that would be the flour one cup at a time. I've tried baking many pound cakes and this is the best. Sara Lee comes in second and Martha White mix in a pouch would be third.
