Cream butter, salt and sugar until light and fluffy. Add beaten eggs gradually. Alternate adding dry with wet ingredients. Scrape bowl as necessary.

Look at that lovely, velvety crumb! This is a wonderful cake to bake in a Bundt pan, but it works well baked in loaf pans, too.

Sub 1/2 cup buttermilk for the lemon juice and milk. For the moistest cake, wrap with plastic wrap while hot and let cool. Glaze with lemon glaze or simply dust with powdered sugar.
