10 stars. Pound cakes that have sour cream usually come out densed and heavy. Not this one. Light, buttery, rich, absolutely wonderful. KEEPER!!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe. Wow.

This is the BEST pound cake on earth PERIOD!!!! The recipe is easy to follow and even "newbies" like myself, can make it. I especially like the texture which is moist and light unlike many pound cakes that are dense and sometimes dry.This was my first time baking a cake that did not come from a box and it was a hit at our "Sunday Dinner" Thank-you for sharing this recipe. The only problem I have with this recipe is everyone wants me to bake one for them. :)

No Fail Sour Cream Pound Cake ~ didn't fail me either : ) I made as directed and had excellent results. I plan to serve this cake with blueberries, vanilla ice cream and a dollop of whipped cream on top. I used a small, decorative bundt cake pan which is smaller than an average sized bundt pan, so this amount of batter also made 9 cupcake sized cakes as well which I plan to freeze for future to use with strawberries! Thanks for another winning recipe, ~*~Ang11002~*~!

I divided each ingredient by three to make a smaller loaf: 1 stick butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs...etc It came out awesome and only took 40 minutes to bake!

Maybe the cake really is bulletproof. When I took the butter out of the fridge, it was cold and hard, so I put it in the microwave as defrost. Left it in too long and the butter mostly melted. I put it into the sugar and whipped them together with a hand mixer. I did manage to follow the rest of the directions, and put it into the oven. Meanwhile, I read up on why I could have screwed up the cake by melting the butter. The cake didn't care. It came out great, and the people I served it to were praising it even a week later. When I make it again, I'll be better about the butter, and try to make a different mistake.

Very Good Pound Cake. This made 2 9x5 loaf pans. I decided to add in about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, and went over real well! Everyone had seconds, lol! Thanks for posting this basic, moist, pound cake Ang.
