Grandmother Paul's Sour Cream Pound Cake

I like to watch Paula Dean on the Food Network and decided to try some of her recipes. Stay tuned, there will be more. I bought the Kitchen Classics Cookbook for my dad and of course borrowed it and found some good recipes. This pound cake is good on it's own but with homemade ice-cream would be the bomb!! This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


2 sticks butter-softened
3 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 t baking soda
3 cups all-purpose flour
6 eggs
1 t vanilla

Cream butter and sugar together, add sour cream. Sift flour and baking soda together. Add to creamed mixture, alternating with eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Add vanilla. Pour into a greased tube pan or angel food pan and bake at 325' for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Let cool completely before removing from pan.
