Can you give me a recipe for sour cream pound cake?

Sour Cream Pound Cake Recipe is a simple classic that is always a hit! It’s creamy and smooth on the inside with a crispy crust on the outside and top. That’s fantastic!

This cake takes 90 minutes to bake since it’s so dense but well worth the time. It has a vanilla/buttery taste and is flavored with vanilla extract.

This buttery cake is great with fresh fruit, fruit sauce, cool whip, caramel, chocolate or plain. It’s incredibly adaptable, which is why I prefer it for potlucks and gatherings. You can make a Pound Cake Bar with various toppings and everyone will be happy!

Sour Cream Pound Cake Recipe Tips

  • Unless the recipe specifies otherwise, always use real butter in pound cake recipes.
  • Make use of high-quality ingredients. Specially good flour, butter, and vanilla. It really makes a difference in flavor.
  • Every recipe should call for Grade A Large eggs. If you use a smaller egg use this guide for substitutions


Cake Recipe


I suggest keeping leftover pound cake in an airtight jar on the counter at room temperature. I usually wrap it in plastic wrap or cut it in slices and keep it on a covered cake plate. It will keep at room temperature for 3 to 4 days.


The pound cake freezes well. Wrap it up tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap and store it in the freezer for 4 to 6 months.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Cream butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric stand mixer until frothy. Scrape the sides of the mixer. To blend, mix everything together.
  • Add eggs one at a time beating each one in before adding the next. Scrape the sides of the mixer. To blend, mix everything together.
  • Stir in sour cream.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking powder, then add 1/2 cup at a time to the batter until incorporated.
  • Mix in the vanilla extract. Scrape the sides of the mixer. Combine again.
  • Spoon batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake at 325°F for 80-85 minutes. I always begin testing at 75 minutes. Insert a long wooden pick carefully into the middle of the cake. When dry crumbs or no crumbs attach to the pick, the cake is done. (I suggest calibrating your oven once a year so that the time shown corresponds to the actual temperature inside. The cooking time indicated is for my oven, and both my oven and pan influence cooking time. As a result, I suggest that you keep a careful eye on your cake the first time you make this recipe. Make a note of it for the next time you cook it. You may wish to acquire this cake thermometer in addition to the toothpick test to determine whether a cake is done. When the cake registers 210°F, it is done.
  • When you remove the cake from the oven, run a thin knife around the edge. Place the cake (in the pan) on a wire rack to cool.
  • Let the cake to cool for 20 to 25 minutes in the pan on a wire rack before inverting onto a tray to cool fully.
