Buttermilk Pound Cake

My mother-in-law was the best cook in the world. She died at age 92 in 2000, but this recipe came from one of her early friends in Winters, TX, before 1943. I bake it in her large tube pan that is 11 1/2" diameter, 4" deep, very heavy steel. It makes a very large cake, but it doesn't last long at our house!
