About this recipe: This sponge cake is incredibly light and moist. Serve as is, with whipped cream and berries or spread over your favourite icing. Simple and delicious!
I have used several very good recipes from allrecipes.com but never felt compelled to write a review until this recipe. I made it for the birthday of a friend whose favorite cake-type desert is pound cake. She thought it was the best she has ever had. I would have to agree. I used 1/2 tsp almond, 1/2 tsp lemon, and 1 tsp vanilla. The flavor was perfect, as was everything about the cake. I looked at all the popular pound cake recipes, and I'm glad I chose this one. Won't ever look for another one. Btw, it took around 50-55 minutes in my oven, and it was not underdone at all. - 27 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely delicious cake! I didnt have butter flavoring so substituted lemon extract. Also, I used 1/2 cup of the sugar to whip the egg whites into firm peaks. The folding of the egg white mix into the batter is what gives this cake the fabulous texture. Thanks for the recipe Bonny! - 08 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Sour Cream Poundcakes have been the only kind my family has eaten for generations. After making this recipe I think I will have to convince my family to switch. It is wonderful! **I used vanilla extract instead of butter and it was perfect. Recipe can also be cut in half and baked in a loaf pan (I used 9x4). - 02 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
