Easy Sour Cream Pound Cake

I wanted to use the free sour cream that we got with Safeway's monopoly game piece so I decided to bake a cake. 

The easiest thing I could find online was Paula Dean's recipe found here.  It called for only 1/2 cup of sour cream so I'll probably make it again one more time. It was a bit sweet so maybe just 1 cup of sugar is 'nuff. Baking time for me ended up at 1 hour. 



  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 3 large eggs 
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/2 cup sour cream 
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar 
  • 1 cup room temperature butter 
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 


Preheat oven to 350 °F.
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 in each egg 1 at a time. Add vanilla.
Pour the mixture into a greased and floured loaf pan. Bake for 40 minutes to 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
