1. Lemon Pound Cake is moderately sweet. You can increase the sugar amount if you like a sweeter cake.
2. Instead of buttermilk you can use plain curd/yogurt (mix curd and water in ratio 2:1)
3. The longer you blend the sugar and butter, the better the result will be.
4. I prefer to use fresh lemon juice but you can also use bottled lemon juice.
