Sour Cream Pound Cake

How was your weekend. Mine was good and busy. I like being busy doing things I like to do. Cooking is one of those things. This weekend I bake two pound cakes and a coconut cream pie. I did the pie last weekend too but it wasn't as pretty as this one. I baked a sour cream pound cake and a chocolate sour cream pound cake. I love me some good pound cake now made with real butter.

I have been wanting to get my foot (eh cakes) in the door in some form to promote my baking somewhere. This week I took the sour cream pound cake and the coconut pie to a local country store to serve with meals in their cafe. No charge this time. I'm excited to see how it goes. I have ideas but just have to work on them and implement. I am considering sending cakes through the mail. I'll have to try it and see how it holds up.

Sour Cream Pound Cake

2 sticks BUTTER softened
3 c sugar
6 eggs
1 8oz carton sour cream
1 1/2 t vanilla flav
1/2 t butter flav
1/2 t lemon flav
3 c flour
1/2 t baking soda

Butter and flour a bundt or other tube pan. Preheat oven to 325.
Cream butter and add sugar and mix. Add eggs one at a time and mix. Add flavorings and mix. Combine flour and baking soda in a bowl and whisk to combine. Alternately add flour and sour cream. Spoon into prepared pan. Bake at 325 for 1 hour and then check using the toothpick test. Mine baked for 1 hour and 4 minutes. Watch it every minute after 1 hour to prevent overbaking.

Look how pretty the pie turned out. I love coconut pie. My favorite. Check out last weeks post for the coconut pie recipe.

Since I spent so much time on other things I didn't plan or fix any thing special for dinner. On Saturday I prepared my favorite sliced smoked sausage with sliced bell pepper and sliced onion with some seasonings and stir fried till it begins to caramelize on the bottom of the skillet. On Sunday I did the same thing with a chicken breast cut up in pieces. Both were served over rice. Rather boring but tasty and easy and filling.

I had a great weekend. I had the best of both worlds this weekend. Some awesome weather, gardening and yard work and cleaning and baking. All in all pretty good.
