BLUE RIBBON POUND CAKE

My Mom made this Sour Cream Pound Cake often, and there was never a crumb wasted. It stays moist for days, and the crusty edges on this cake are to die for! You can either bake this cake in a large bundt pan, or 2 bread pans. Slice and serve with fresh berries & whipped cream. I like glaze over the top, but you can also sprinkle the hot cake with Cinnamon & sugar, or confectioners sugar as well. This will be a favorite of yours as well!
