Susu’s Sour Cream Pound Cake

Some recipes feel as dear to my heart as they do to my tastebuds. Susu’s Sour Cream Pound Cake definitely ranks at the top of that list. My mom, SuSu, has been making this recipe for years. It was a staple of both celebration and comfort. She made it for baby showers, wedding showers, to take to people in times of need, and for dessert on Sunday summer nights with fresh berries and whipped cream. I cherish this recipe and the memories it brings.

Pound cake looks so unassuming. No sprinkles, no frills. But beneath that plain Jane exterior lies a dense, velvety cake that’s absolute magic to taste. And thanks to a secret ingredient (uh, sour cream), this pound cake turns out a moist, tender and buttery pound cake with a crackly crust. It’s perfect every single time. Served with berries and cream or plain with a cup of coffee, I’m convinced nothing is better than a slice of SuSu’s Sour Cream Pound Cake.

Three Bowls, One Perfect Cake

First, in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until well-combined. Next, beat in the egg yolks one at a time.

In a separate small bowl, stir the baking soda into the sour cream. Alternately, add approximately one-third of the cake flour and one-third of the sour cream mixture to the batter bowl, beating on low speed after each addition until just incorporated. Add in the vanilla and almond extract.

In a clean mixing bowl, beat the egg whites to a soft peak. Fold them into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake in a 300°F oven for 80-90 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes before inverting onto the wire rack to cool completely.

Serve with your favorite fresh fruits and whipped cream and enjoy!
