Ingredients

How to make it

  • Sift flour and measure
  • Resift twice with baking soda and set aside
  • Cream butter
  • Add sugar slowly, beating constantly to cream well until light and fluffy
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition
  • Add sour cream
  • Add flour, ½ cup at a time, beating well and constantly
  • Add vanilla or lemon extract
  • Turn into well greased and floured 10 inch tube pan
  • Bake in moderate oven at 325 degrees about 1 ½ hours or until cake is done (it will spring back when touched lightly with finger)
  • When cake is done, remove from oven and place on rack to cool 5 minutes
  • Loosen cake around edge of pan with dull side of knife. This protects the crust
  • Turn cake onto rack to cool completely
  • Serve plain or with fruit (good with strawberries)
  • This cake can be frozen, either whole or cut (wrap in several thicknesses of clear plastic or aluminum foil)
  • **A good substitute for sour cream is 1 cup evaporated milk plus juice of 1 lemon, mixed together.
  • **Crisco is best for greasing pan.
