Homemade Sour Cream Pound Cake


Homemade Sour Cream Pound Cake. Recipe from "Virginia Hospitality" cookbook. Instead of a tube pan, we used a regular loaf pan.

Sour Cream Pound Cake

1 cup butter, softened
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3 cups sifted flour
1 1/2 tsp. lemon extract
1 1/2 tsp. almond extract

Preheat oven to 300F. Cream butter. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time. Beat at high speed after each addition. Add whole eggs, 1 at a time, beating well at medium speed. Add sour cream, beating well. Add soda, baking powder and salt to flour. Then add dry ingredients, 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add flavorings. Pour into well-greased tube pan. Bake for 1 1/2 hours. Let stand 10 minutes before removing from pan.
