“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.”
My best friend shared the recipe for this delightful dessert. It goes great with a cup of tea, too. Notice that there is no leavening in the recipe—the carbonated soda does the job! —Kelly Ward Hartman, Cape Coral, Florida
We've always included pound cake on our family menus, and through the years, I've tried many recipes, I can honestly say this one is the best! It has a very fine, rich texture that makes it unusually smooth. That texture, plus fantastic flavor, makes this pound cake a special treat each time we serve it.
Now that I've retired from teaching, I have more time to bake. This cake is the one I make most often. It is a truly Southern recipe, and one I think can't be topped—once people taste it, they won't go back to their other pound cake recipes. —Gracie Hanchey, De Ridder, Louisiana
