My sister in law Sandy gave me this old family recipe. It has become our traditional cake to make Christmas trifle. It is a bit of a bother to make but is so worth the time and effort.

Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 300 degrees. Butter and flour a tube pan.
  2. Separate the eggs, set yolks aside. Whip the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  3. In another bowl cream butter, sugar, and vanilla together. Add egg yolks one at a time, incorporating each one before adding the next one.
  4. Add the baking soda to the flour. Alternate adding flour and sour cream to the butter mixture. When all the flour and sour cream have been incorporated fold in the egg whites by hand. Do not use a mixer to fold the egg whites. Some of the egg white will be visible in the batter.
  5. Evenly spoon the batter into the prepared tube pan. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool for 10 minutes and invert onto a plate.
Recipe Notes

Using butter to grease the pan makes for a lovely edge. I have tried using cooking spray and it just isn't the same.

  1. Hi,
    I just made this pound cake and it’s in the oven. I wanted to point out that you left the step out to add vanilla in your recipe. I noticed this when I was getting ready to put the batter in the pan. I’m looking forward to having a piece of this cake since pound cake is my absolute favorite.
    Thanks
