Serves 10-12 | Prep Time 15 | Cook Time 65

Ingredients

3/4 cup butter, softened, room temperature
2 1/4 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup commercial sour cream, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1/4 tsp. lemon extract (I used lemon peel)
Powdered sugar (optional)


Cream butter, then gradually add the sugar, beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer.


Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.


Combine the flour and baking soda, then add to the creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just blended after each addition. Stir in flavorings.


Pour the batter into a greased and floured 10-inch Bundt pan. Bake in a preheated 325 degrees F oven for 65 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Cool in pan 10 to 15 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.


If desired, sprinkle cake with powdered sugar. Makes one 10-inch cake.

Notes

I love the magazine Southern Living. Through their annual recipes cookbook 1989 I found this pound cake recipe. Since my family loves pound cake, I keep trying new recipes looking for the peace de resistance of cakes. Will this be the one...you decide!

This cake is one that has been passed down through the females of my family. Reading it made me wonder if we were kin. The taste and memories of this is heaven all over again. Thank you for the reminder, Zoe

A dash of local for every season
