Basic Sour Cream Poundcake Recipe

Basic Sour Cream Poundcake Recipe
Southern Sour Cream Pound Cake is dense, buttery, and very flavorful. It is a great basic cake that is delicious on its own. When I’m serving it as is, I like to bake it in a tube or bundt pan. It can be lightly drizzled with a little plain icing, or sprinkled with powdered sugar to make it fancier.
Sometimes I bake this cake in a jellyroll pan so I can cut it into tiny squares to use as dippers for a chocolate fountain. It’s also great cut into larger squares topped with ice cream and fudge sauce, or pie filling and whipped cream.
