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. This is almost the exact same recipe I grew up with made by my grandmother and it’s always been my favorite cake EVER!!! Ours has shortening rather than butter but I’m sure this is amazing too! Can’t wait to try it.

  2. I don’t think I’ve ever made pound cake, yet it’s SO good! Your recipe looks really tasty. My grandmother’s old wooden kitchen table had years of vinyl tablecloths plastered to it … not sure why they didn’t just replace the old ones rather than piling them on, but it was the funniest thing to us kids!

  3. I have many similiar memories of my grandmother too!Thank you for sharing such a personal story. I love all the old school photos! Your Granny’s sour cream pound cake looks beautiful!
