Sour Cream Pound Cake

I've made a lot of cakes in my day but one type that I've never attempted is a pound cake... until now! I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. I altered it a bit (decreased the sugar and added vanilla) and was pleasantly surprised with the results.

  • 1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • a pinch of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease and flour an 8x4 inch loaf pan. Cream butter and sugar.

Add sour cream and eggs.

Sift the flour and baking soda over the mixture and mix until combined.

Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for about an hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.

This cake tastes best served fresh and warm (as do most cakes, I suppose). Enjoy!
