Old Fashioned Pound Cake

3 cups cake flour
6 large eggs
1 pound butter, softened to room temperature
1 pound sugar
2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup buttermilk
Oven: 325 °

Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar. Blend in the butter. With mixer on low speed, add the eggs, whole. Slowly add buttermilk, and then the vanilla extract, stirring thoroughly. Increase speed to medium and beat 2 minutes, gradually increasing to high speed for 2 more minutes or until all air pockets are removed. Lightly grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan. Pour in batter and bake for about 1 hour 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of cake comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool 15 or 20 minutes in the pan. Then gently remove to cake stand.
