Paula Deen's Grandmother Paula's Sour Cream Pound Cake

We had an early 4th of July luncheon today at work. I decided to try out my new Nordic Ware bundt pan that my son and daughter-in-law got me for Mother's Day. I have several Nordic Ware bundt pans and I love each one of them. I like to make pound cakes and these pans make them turn out really special.

I decided to try Paula Deen's Grandmother Paula's Sour Cream Cake recipe. To keep with the red, white, and blue I served it with strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream. The stars don't show as well in the cake picture, but I thought it was a good cake for 4th of July.

Hope everyone has a safe and fun 4th.


1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, softened
3 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups all-purpose flour
6 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Add the sour cream and mix until incorporated. Sift the baking soda and flour together. Add to the creamed mixture alternating with eggs, beating each egg one at a time. Add the vanilla and pour the mixture into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes.

How did this taste? I have wanted to make it also. I like your pan and I can't resist buying new ones.

Anj said...

Hey Em! Yes, I love this pan. Happy 4th to you. Can't wait to see what you will make.

Joyce: This cake is really, really good. I thought the sour cream might be a bit too tart for it, but it makes it very moist. The crumb is just perfect.

Carrie: Yes, I'm a fan of *Pawla* -- LOL.
