“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.”
Since we are originally from Texas, we naturally love sweet potatoes, but this pound cake deserves to be a tradition in any home, whether you’re from the South, East, North or West. My Montana husband rancher loves it and I get great revues from ladies I’ve treated with it at various social events.
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
