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.
Sour Cream Pound Cake is perfect for breakfast or for an after dinner snack. This dense, yet moist, cake will make you happy with every bite.

What’s the difference between bundt and a tube pan?
A tube pan has a removable part that allows you to lift a part of the pan from around the cake.
A bundt pan is all one piece, with usually a fluted shape or design to give the cake an artistic shape. Tube pans will never have an artistic shape. If you go to Amazon and type in each type of pan, you will be shown examples.
So it’s really just a cake tin with a lose bottom. What size in cm’s please.
I’m an ex home cook and baker who has lost her nerve and I’m trying to get my ‘green thumb’! Back. My cakes aren’t coming out very well though which is massive depressing.
Thank you for your reply
No, it is not. See here: bundt pan and tube pan.
As I’ve said in the recipe, it is a bundt pan – 8 inch diameter, 4.25 cups volume (or 20 cm diameter, 1 liter volume).
I’m sorry. Have I annoyed you?
No, everything is OK. 🙂 English is not my native language, so I apologize if I sound rude.
one place you have baking powder and in the directions you have baking soda so which one is it?
It is 1 tsp baking powder or 1/2 tsp baking soda. I used baking powder.
Do you have recipes for the sauces?
I do. See here: https://www.kitchennostalgia.com/tag/sauce/
