Sour Cream Pound Cake Recipe

This pound cake loaf is the perfect size for most families, and it's absolutely delicious with fruit or a lemon sauce. Pound cake slices make a wonderful base for strawberry shortcakes, too!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Yield: 1 Loaf


  • 1 stick (4 ounces) butter
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • dash salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


Grease and flour an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2-inch loaf pan. Heat the oven to 300°. With an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar until light. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and almond extract. Add the baking soda, salt, sour cream, and flour and beat until smooth and well blended.
Spread in the prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. Increase oven temperature to 325° and bake for 15 to 20 minutes longer, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
Enjoy, Jean
