Paula Deen - Sour Cream Pound Cake
  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Add the sour cream and mix until incorporated. Sift the baking soda and flour together. Add to the creamed mixture alternating with eggs, beating each egg 1 at a time. Add the vanilla and pour the mixture into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes.
"Delicious pound cake -- tastes great by itself, or topped with strawberries and cream for a shortcake, or even a chocolate sauce. I also saw that Paula tops a slice of pound cake with lemon curd and fresh lemon zest. Yum! This pound cake tastes much better on the 3rd or 4th day."
