I love a good old fashioned pound cake. Especially when it’s a southern lemon pound cake made from scratch. Don’t get me wrong, I love my semi homemade lemon pound cake loaf recipe (which was a lemon pound cake made with cake mix), that I uploaded a few months back. But from scratch pound cake recipes are my favorite! In this post I’m going to share one of my all time favorite easy lemon pound cake recipes. This real southern lemon pound cake is made with fresh lemons, real butter, buttermilk, and sour cream.
