Ingredients

  • 2 sticks butter (softened!)
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 6 eggs (room temperature)
  • 3 cups flour
  • powdered sugar
  • Baker's Joy Spray

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy

  6. Let batter rest for 15 minutes

  7. Set the oven to 325 degrees

  8. Spray the Baker's Joy generously into the bundt pan (make sure all surfaces of the pan are coated!)

  9. After 15 minutes, add the batter from your large bowl into the bundt pant (make it evenly spread!)

  10. Bake for one hour, or one hour and 10-15 minutes depending on your oven (ours is one hour and 18 minutes exactly every time for best results!) - test doneness with a toothpick!

  11. When finished, set the bundt pan down to sit until cool

  12. When cool, place one hand on the center of the bundt pan, the other on the bottom, flip pound cake onto your serving dish. Remove bundt pan.
