Mamaw’s Sour Cream Pound Cake

Recently, I found Mamaw’s  recipe for Sour Cream Pound Cake.  I had to give it a try. This is a traditional pound cake. While dense like a pound cake should be it has a delicate flavor.

It is great on its own or topped with strawberries and whipped cream.  Mamaw used to place slices in the toaster oven and toast them slightly for a breakfast treat.

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time.  Whip until fluffy. Fold in flour. Add sour cream and mix well. Add vanilla and mix.

Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan and bake at 300 for 1 hour and 20 minutes.  Toothpick inserted into the center will come out clean.
