Sour Cream Pound Cake with Fresh Strawberry Sauce

I found this recipe in a magazine years ago and everyone loves it so much that I am requested to bring it to all parties. I prefer making the recipe in loaf pans as it seems to serve more easily. I usually have fresh whipped cream (with a bit of almond extract) for those who might like to add it.
