Southern Kitchen Bucket List : Sour Cream Pound Cake.

Southern Kitchen Bucket List : Sour Cream Pound Cake.

This post is part of our on-going Southern Kitchen Bucket List series, an attempt to try and master all the staple foods + recipes from a classic Southern kitchen. Pound Cake might just be one of those go-to dessert recipes you should master right up there after you learn a classic Chocolate Cake.

Knocking this classic off of my Southern Kitchen Bucket List took me way back to being a kid. I remember making this southern classic at my cousins’ house when I would visit in the summer time and we would all enjoy it with whatever fresh fruit we could get our hands on. This is one of my favorite memories with my cousins, so seeing my kids now enjoy pound cake as much as I did makes me so happy.

During the summer, this is a dessert recipe I tend to pull out frequently since I usually have all the ingredients at home already—hence saving me a trip to the grocery store with my kiddos.

The thing I love the most about this particular recipe is that the sour cream adds an extra bit of moisture to the cake. Because I mean, come on, no one likes a dry pound cake.
