Sour Cream Pound Cake is a popular variation of an old fashioned pound cake in the cuisine of the Southern United State. Some of the butter is substituted with sour cream , which produces a more moist cake with a nice tangy flavor.
Recently, some chocolate chips, blueberries, nuts or nutella are added to the cake batter.
You can bake this cake in a bundt, tube or a loaf pan. Serve it dusted lightly with powdered sugar or glazed with lemon, orange or rum glaze.
