Perfect Pound Cake

I think I have finally found the recipe for the perfect pound cake!! I have been looking and cooking for years, but have never been able to make a pound cake worthy of praise. They all seemed to be too dry or didn’t have that REAL pound cake flavor. But I think I have finally done it. And the great thing is that it really isn’t that hard to make. Here is my recipe for the Perfect Pound Cake:

Perfect Pound Cake

3 sticks of butter, room temperature
3 cups of sugar
3 cups minus 6 tablespoons of cake flour
8 oz sour cream
6 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons of real vanilla (more if you want it to be really rich)

Cream butter, sugar and sour cream together with mixer. Ann vanilla and mix well. Alternate adding flour and eggs while mixing. Bake 65-75 minutes at 300 degrees. DO NOT PREHEAT OVEN.

  2. What size pan did you use? It looks perfect but I can’t tell the size of pan being used.
    Do you ever make a chocolate pound cake and do you use the same ingredients plus adding cocoa? If so how much and is the temperature the same and the baking time the same?
    I can’t wait to try your recipe.

  3. Hello, My name is Frances Norfleet. I looked for a recipe about 3 months ago and came across this one. I got all my ingredients together and i heard someone else say ” Do not preheat oven”. Best advice I ever heard, my cakes were good before. But my daughter did not like the ” to brown part”, as she calls it. So when I found this one it was like dreamy. I made it and it came out sooooooooo! oh so pretty. Thanks very much for sharing your recipe, it is now my go to.
