This cake is absolutely wonderful! I whipped this up this morning to serve tomorrow evening, pound cakes are usually better if made a day in advance. I made the mistake of adding in 3/4 cup of sour cream instead of 1/2 cup and it was till fine. I did however cut the sugar down by half a cup (2-1/2 cups)I used 1 tsp baking powder instead of the 1/2 tsp that the recipe called for, and added in 1 tsp almond extract. I made sure to cream the butter, sugar and eggs very well for 8 minutes on my Kitchen Aid, and baked it in a well-greased Bundt pan, in an air convection oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes. I will serve this cake sliced with a peach glaze oven each piece. Thank you for a wonderful recipe Jamie Lynne!....Kittencal:)
