Bomby’s Buttermilk Pound Cake

This pound cake won a Blue ribbon at the Comal County Fair in New Braunfels – and I’m talking a Texas blue ribbon pound cake – so you know the competition is fierce. The recipe was passed down to my Great Aunt Judy from her Bomby making us the 5th generation to enjoy this pound cake goodness.


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tbs. warm water
  • 1/3 teaspoon soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. salt

    Have eggs and butter at room temperature. Beat sugar and butter until very light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Beat well after each addition.

    Scald soda with warm water and add to 1/2 cup of the buttermilk. Then, add a little to the sugar and butter mixture.

    Rotate adding a little of the buttermilk with soda and a little of the flour to the sugar and butter mixture. Slowly beat after each time.

    When you have used up 1/2 the flour, add the vanilla to the other 1/2 cup of the buttermilk. Add the salt to the rest of the flour.

    Do the same as you did with the first half. Alternate adding buttermilk and flour.

    Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour – or until a toothpick comes out clean when tested. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes before taking out of pan.
