Sour Cream Pound Cake

This recipe comes from my sister-in-law and is really called Cindy's Butt Kickin' Sour Cream Cake. My husband raves about this cake! It is a recipe that Cindy got from her Aunt Dot. The trick, according to Aunt Dot, to baking any cake that does not have baking powder in it is to NOT PREHEAT THE OVEN. According to Aunt Dot.....this is "very important".

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks. Beat.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. ( I use one of those single stick hand blenders.) Fold the egg whites into the mix.
