Delicious Grandma’s Buttermilk Pound Cake


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon butter-flavored extract





Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt(R)).

Sift flour, salt, and baking soda together into a bowl. Repeat sifting process 2 more times.

Beat sugar and shortening together until smooth and creamy. Add flour mixture, buttermilk, eggs, lemon extract, vanilla extract, and butter extract; beat until batter is just combined. Pour batter into prepared tube pan.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 75 minutes. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
