I have been looking for a good pound cake recipe - this summer I tried one with heavy whipping cream, the next with buttermilk, and then this one with sour cream. This one is the keeper!
Uh-mazing!!!! So fluffy and moist! I used lemon extract in place of vanilla and per other reviewers, I sugared THEN floured my greased tube pan. The crust is out of-this-world tasty!! Tastes exactly like a danish butter cookie, my favorite. Be sure to mix eggs in individually as directed, the texture is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Definitely making this again soon!!
I typically make a cream cheese pound cake. And it was requested for a birthday get together. However, I was out of cream cheese! Thank goodness for this recipe, it may be a new favorite!
