Reviews for Blueberry Sour Cream Pound Cake
"This pound cake was excellent. Will definitely make again."
"This cake turned out great for me. It's now in my recipe book"
"I have made this cake twice and its been a hit both times. I didn't use the butter flavor. I cut the sugar back to 2 3/4 cups. Its very moist and everyone goes back for more."
"Delicious, the first time I made it the batter was not completely done. The second time I decreased the oven temp to 325 and baked for 1 and 1/2 hour. It has beome a family favorite. Sandy"
"This recipe is the best I've ever had. I took it to a friends house, she had made a blueberry poundcake also. We both cook so we compared and this one won! She called her husband and told him about it. Today I'm making it for dessert at church!"
"Made this cake for my Sunday School class and everyone kept going back for more."
"Excellant! This is definately going to be a family favorite and a yummy treat to share with friends."
"Beautiful presentation on a pedestal cake plate. Large cake, perfect to feed a crowd or big family. Loved the moist texture. Flavors and texture improved after Day 1. I cut back sugar to 2.5 cups and increased blueberries to 2 cups and it still turned out great. Next I would like to experiment with different flavors - vanilla only, or lemon instead of almond. Considered topping it with a glaze, but it wasn't necessary. Any way you set this cake up, it's wonderful!"
"butter flavoring is also found in the section with vanilla extract, etc."
"I believe butter flavoring can be purchased at cake supply stores. My sister has used it."
