Not even a crumb....

I made a cake for my birthday.....

I made it in my Williams-Sonoma cake pan and it turned out perfectly. It was the perfect squishyness without any burnt edges and it flipped out of the pan without sticking. It was a work of art, it really was.

But it is gone.

And it was good.

So, I'll share the recipe. This was passed on from Robin Layman to Rita Bower to me....

Sour Cream Pound Cake

3 sticks butter
3 c. sugar

Creamed together.

Add 6 eggs, one at a time, beating each time until fluffy.

Add....
1 c. sour cream
2 t. vanilla
3 c. flour

Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.


Side note:
This is really too much to fit in the pan, and it ran over. So I did what any great chef would do....
I put a cookie sheet under it to catch the drips. It made little Pound Cake Blobs that tasted great served with my morning coffee.

And now they're gone too.

You can find them glued to my hips.

I can't believe you didn't take a picture of the cake!!! Surely you did? I mean, really, what kind of blogger are you???!! (kidding, kidding!)
I'm glad you enjoyed the cake, any birthday girl deserves to enjoy her cake:) And you can always walk it off your hips, right?
Anyway, your cake stand is pretty!
Have a great day, is it cold down there like it is here?

well...Jill...she really didn't have much chance to get a picture of the cake because her good friend and her family kind of came over and umm, er, ahem ate it all up...so she failed to blog about, how, not only is the cake on HER hips, she helped fatten up her friend too (who by the way, really needs some fattening up, have you seen her?...just getting soooo thin...I worry about her)
