Sour Cream Pound Cake

Paula Deen’s Sour Cream Pound Cake

Ive really been in the baking mood lately. I am making some special cake balls for a family get together after Momma’s rehearsal dinner and will post that later. Today I made Paula Deen’s Sour Cream Pound Cake.

Oh my goodness, while it was baking it smelled soo good that I couldn't wait for it to be done and slice into it. I personally don’t like toppings for my pound cake but you can always do a easy glaze, fresh fruit, or powder sugar. The recipe calls to bake for 40-60 minutes. After 40 minutes, mine was still really gooey so a hour made it perfect.

Here’s the recipe:

• 1 stick butter, room temperature
• 1 1/2 cups sugar
• 1/2 cup sour cream
• 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 3 large eggs
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
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 in each egg 1 at a time. Add vanilla.
Pour the mixture into a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake for 40 minutes to 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

It is so easy to make and taste delicious!
