Sour Cream Pound Cake

Recipe by Chef mariajane

I love the old-fashioned pound cakes, they can be adapted into so may dessert recipes or just have a piece of it alone. This is a quick recipe for a pound cake but it does taste delicious.

Was looking for something different using a cake mix but still feeling "homemade" -- this cake is awesome -- light & moist. Cooking times were perfect. I did let it cool in bundt pan for 1 hr as well and then inverted on cake plate. Thanks for posting. I can commit this one to memory and make on the fly!! Since there were no pics, I decided to post what I ended up with from "out of the oven" to "inverted on cake plate" to "sliced and quickly disappearing in our kitchen" photos. Really great and easy.
