“Sour Cream Pound Cake is one of my favorite cake recipes,” writes Colleen Rogers of Charlotte, North Carolina. “I add 1/8 teaspoon of ground mace with the dry ingredients, and it really sparks the flavor.”
Here’s the recipe I reach for when I need something tried and true. The old-fashioned cake has a tangy lemon flavor and is a nice dessert for potlucks or most any occasion. —Marianna King, Gastonia, North Carolina
"This is my own low-fat recipe and I often use cubes of it to make a wonderfully light blueberry trifle," writes Joyce Grasby from Rochester, New York. She also likes to spoon fresh or frozen fruit or berries over each slice for added flavor.
