Sour Cream Pound Cake #SundaySupper

Comfort food.  
That one dish that transports you. 
The one meal that can seem to make all of your problems disappear.

The one recipe that can take you out of your kitchen and put you back around that wooden table with the mismatched chairs and the counters full of food.  The taste that takes you back to sharing a Sunday Supper with your aunts and uncles and cousins. 
It’s truly amazing what a piece of cake can do.  It can take me back to her.  Back to the house at the end of the longest driveway in the world.  The house that no one ever used the front door because the back one was always open.  Back to a bowl full of Andes Mints on the entry table and nesting dolls that I could play with for hours.
Even though I don’t remember much in regards to her cooking; I do remember her pound cake.  The moist sweet cake with ribbons of sour cream and the golden brown crust that I always saved for last. 
The cake that will always give us one last #SundaySupper together.

  1. I love the memories! My grandma is a terrible cook however she made these amazing cookies that I will always remember. It is her one closely guarded secret that she did finally give me but asked that I never blog about, which by the way is torture because seriously, the world needs these cookies. I love pound cake but my husband often finds it too dull for his taste, but I bet he would change his mind with this recipe.

    1. I did debate sharing the recipe since it is the one & only recipe I have from her but I knew as soon as we were doing comfort food for #SundaySupper that I wouldn’t be able to blog about any other recipe!
      And since you can’t share the recipe for the cookies, you’re welcome to just send me a plate of them to taste test!! 😉

  2. I love recipes like this where they bring you back to childhood. Such a classic to make pound cake. It looks so tasty. Love the old photos too. Nice to be welcomed into your world.

  3. Love this recipe and love that you shared your memories with us. I am making my Nanny’s apple pie next week and thanks to your inspiration, I will be sharing a photo of her in my post. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I’m a sucker for pound cake. i love to make one and then use it for strawberry shortcake, with ice cream, or drizzle chocolate over top of it-yours sounds incredible with the sour cream in it!

      1. Made this cake yesterday. The moment I took it out of the oven it fell and the bottom of the cake was still a wet dough. I rebaked it and it cooked the wet dough somewhat but it didn’t rise again or bake completely through. Still tasted good. I live in western new York. Could the altitude have something to do with it? I was disappointed needless to say.

        1. Oh man, I’m so sorry the recipe didn’t work out for you Michelle! I imagine altitude could have played a factor – I’m in TX so that’s definitely different from NY! 🙂 It’s a family recipe that we make on a regular basis, and I’ve never had issues with it not baking through or falling. I’m happy to trouble shoot with you though to try to make it work next time!
