Sour Cream Pound Cake


You can always count on a good friend to give you a good recipe.

My friend, Karen, comes from a long line of good cooks.  Her grandmother was a great cook and her mom is “The Pie Lady”.  She can whip up a Caramel Pie or a Coconut Cream Pie in the blink of an eye.  She always has the ingredients on hand.

Karen has turned out like her mom in that respect.  She’s a great cook.  This is a recipe that she shared with me recently.  It’s so easy, yet so delicious!

I’ve made this cake twice this week.  I polished off most of the first one myself, but took the second one to my inlaws’ family get together.  I had to get that evil thing out of the house!  My hips have gotten wider just this week.  I’m trying to low carb, I really am.  I try to save my treat for that one-hour span, like the Carb Addict plan suggests, but it sure is hard with this treat around!

Karen prefers the cake ‘nekkid’, but I made an Orange Glaze to pour over the warm cake.  Most of it pooled up in the middle, but I just spooned that right out of the middle and onto my slice.  Mmm-mmm, good.
