    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.

    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.

    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. :)
