Sour Cream Pound Cake

I found a really delicious and easy recipe for pound cake in my Betty Crocker recipe book the other day.  So I decided to share it since it was both easy and tasty.  I was trying to find something similar to the famous Starbucks Marble Pound Cake.  It's not quite Starbucks, but it's a good alternative.


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sour cream
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups white flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
splash of vanilla
chocolate sauce - optional


Set the butter, sour cream, and eggs out to come to room temperature for 30 minutes.  While these are coming to room temperature, mix together flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl.  Whip the butter and sugar for 10 minutes on medium speed.  Add 1 egg at a time, continuing to whip after each egg for approximately 1 minute on low speed.  Add vanilla then slowly alternate adding the flour mixture, then the sour cream mixture, stopping to scrap down the sides.  Once combined, place in a loaf pan.  If you're looking to change it up, remove about 2 cups mixture and add about 1/4 cup or more of the chocolate sauce.  Mix these well and then pour over the top of the mix in the loaf pan, don't mix this.  Bake in oven at 325 degrees for approximately 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
