Thanks Joseph! This sounds divine....can't wait til I try this one :)

Any type of sour cream recommended? Fat free, light or full fat? One last silly question - can you make pound cake with margarine instead of butter? *ducks*

I have made it with Margarine before, but you have to get good margarine with a high oil content. Land o Lakes is a good one Ms. Filberts and blue bonnet is not. Butter will of course make a much better crust.

I only use the full fat sour cream, but I bet the lower fat would work. If you try it let me know.

I made this a couple of weeks ago. I used margarine (Becel salt free) instead of butter, I didn't use cake flour but just 2tbsp less/cup of all purpose flour and instead of the 1tsp of vanilla, I used 3 tsp of lemon extract.

Personally I think it was too much sugar - I felt a jolt - but I'm not one to eat a lot of sugary baked goods often. DF liked it as it was :) I think I will attempt this again but using Splenda and more lemon extract with zest to kick up that flavour.

The sour cream made the cake so moist and dense - I love that aspect. I also just mixed it by hand, no hand blender either :)

Great recipe Joseph!

Sounds delish! will have to try it.

Won't have to worry about putting the pan on a cookie sheet....I boiled a pie over about a month ago..:ack: and haven't cleaned it yet. (well, cleaned one)

Will put the oven rack out in garden across some weeds and spray with Easy Off........best weed killer there is!
