Sour Cream Pound Cake Recipe @pinch

Tender and perfectly sweet, this is the perfect old havefashioned pound cake. There's a slight citrus undertone from the added flavorings. The top forms a slightly sugary crust, while the cake itself is soft and billowy. A delicious light dessert or it can be served at brunch with fresh fruit. This is the best pound cake ever! The combination of the three flavorings is delicious. For years I never shared this recipe with anyone because it was my signature dish for potlucks, funerals, parties, etc.
