This is a very simple cake but has a great flavour due to the addition of sour cream. Decorate if you like.
I have used this basic recipe for a couple of years. It's four stars with the changes that I made. I added a tsp of vanilla and decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup. I don't like a sweet pound cake. I added more like a heaping half cup of sour cream. The first time I made this it started to burn. Now I bake it at 350. If anyone is new to baking and unsure of what a pinch is just use a 1/8 tsp measure for the salt and the baking soda and you will be fine. - 20 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is excellent! This is what I did to make it come out that way. I added 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp almond extract to the batter. I baked it at 350 degrees for 75 minutes. The inside was moist and tender. The outside was crusty and rich. I topped it with whipped cream and sliced, sugared fresh strawberries. It was yummy! - 04 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great recipe! I doubled the recipe, used cake flour, a tube pan and dropped the temperature to 350. The cake was perfect! Remember..eggs and butter at room temperature and don't overbeat. This recipe is a keeper! http://www.film-guy.com - 03 Oct 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
