Sour Cream Pound Cake


  • Author: Meagan
  • Total Time: 25 Minutes

Description

My copy of Canadian Living’s, ‘The Complete Canadian Living Baking Book’, is almost not visible due to the number of sticky notes I’ve slapped in it to mark things I need to try.  This is one of those recipes…super plain and simple, but it can be dressed up a number of ways (and comes out of the freezer beautifully) – enjoy!


Ingredients

Scale

Sour Cream Pound Cake

1 c. butter, softened

1 c. sugar

4 eggs

2 t. vanilla

2 1/4 c. flour

1 1/2 t. baking powder

1/2 t. salt

1/2 c. sour cream


Instructions

Butter a 9 x 5 loaf pan, line the bottom with parchment and butter that as well.  Using your electric mixer, beat the butter for a couple of minutes until it’s fluffy and lighter in color, then beat in the sugar until well combined.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating in between additions and scraping down the bowl as needed, then beat in the vanilla.

In a separate small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt and then stir the dry mix into the butter mixture in 3 additions, alternating with 2 additions of sour cream.  Start and end with the dry mix.  Scrape the batter into your prepared pan, smooth the top and bake for about 1 hour and 5 minutes until the top is cracked and bounces back to a light touch, and it’s a lovely golden color.  Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for about 20 minutes before transferring it to a rack to cool completely.
