Carmel Sour Cream Pound Cake

Bosslady Smith


This Carmel Sour Cream Pound is loved by My Husband the most but when guest are over and it is being served I would have to say it's loved by many. The reason would be the rich and heavy taste of both cake and icing.My Great Aunt Gennnell over the years help me enhance my passion for baking cake's. She has past me down many great recipe's. I made the Carmel Sour Cream Pound one of my household needs for Sunday dinner's. My family make's the request often so with that being said it's at the the top of The Smith Family list.
