Nothing makes me happier then to see my little granchildren enjoy my sweets. I love to bake, and even though I am not a sweets person. I have a large family of children, granchildren and great granchildren who love sweets and are always asking me to bake or make sweet breads, cakes, cup cakes, cookies, flans, puddings or pies. I do love pound cake. Here is my recipe for Sour Cream Pound Cake. Enjoy
Cream together sugar and butter, add the egg yolks one at a time, beat well after each addition, Blend in vanilla, sour cream, and lemon zest. Set aside.
Into a seperate bowl, sift flour, salt, and baking soda together. Add sifted dry ingredients to batter; beat well. In a seperate bowl, beat the egg whites untill stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into the cake batter. Pour into a greased and floured tube pan and bake at 300 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours or until cake tests done.
After baking take out and let cool. Unmold into a cake dish and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Enjoy
