      This is a terrific pound cake. The flavour of the lemon and the sour cream really compliment each other. It is easy and quick to make. It filled the house with a lovely lemon smell while it was cooking. We hopped into the cake as soon as we could. Oh my gosh, the taste is heaven. I was concerned about the amount of sugar in the recipe but I stuck to the recipe and sure was rewarded. This is a MUST TRY recipe. Thank you Bev. :-)

      Very good cake. The texture is soft and moist. It rose very high but It was not as buttery as I would like and it was a bit on the sweet side. The next time I will reduce the sugar by 1/2 cup. UPDATE: I went back and changed from 4 to 5 stars because this cake tastes exceptional the next day and the day afterward. It got more mellow, the buttery flavor came out and the ingredients seem to meld together perfectly. Even after 3 days, the cake is still very moist and soft. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

      I made this cake today and it was fabulous.The texture came out just right because I added a 1/4 tsp. soda to sour cream and stir before adding to batter mixture.I also used Bakewell baking powder due it allows cakes to rise better creating a lighter cake.It is an awesome baking powder you can find at William Sonoma stores.
