Old Fashioned Sour Cream Pound Cake

It isn't as heavy as a regular pound cake... and not too sweet, it's just right with a hint of almond and egg. Tasty all by itself, or enhanced with ice cream or whipped cream and berries. So comforting!!
This cake is made from all high fat sugary goodness. This 40 year old recipe was written when men were men, and cake was cake. It's the perfect sweet for those times you let your hair down and indulge in decadence... just this once.
