INGREDIENTS

3 cups of flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
3 cups sugar + more for pan
6 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease one 9 or 10 inch tube pan with butter and then coat with sugar. Mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar. Mix in the eggs, one at time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the lemon and the vanilla extracts. Gently mix in flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 90 minutes. Do not open oven door until after one hour. When cake begins to pull away from the side of the pan it is done. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

Frost if desired.
