Guest Blogger: Sour Cream Pound Cake

This recipe comes courtesy from my friend, Lauren. She is currently in culinary school and I am so happy that she has agreed to participate in this new feature! Thank you, Lauren! :)

I made this for my Grandpa for his 76th birthday and he loved it! I hope everyone will make it and enjoy it as well. I put strawberries on top and a little bit of vanilla ice cream and it made the cake more enjoyable! Alone or with something else makes this cake. Enjoy!!

Sour Cream Pound Cake


1 cup of butter
3 cups of sugar
6 eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. Baking soda
3 cups flour
1 cup sour cream


Cream butter and sugar together in an electric mixer preferably. Add 6 egg yolks and save the whites for later! Then you will need to add 1 tsp. Of vanilla and the baking soda. Then you will need to add the 3 cups of flour and 1 cup of sour cream alternately.

In a seperate mixing bowl beat the egg whites that were set aside until stiff. After they are stiff fold the whites into the batter. Grease a tube pan with pam then pour the batter into the tube pan and bake at 325 F for an hour or until golden.
