Lemon Walnut Sour Cream Pound Cake - SMS

This week's Sweet Melissa Sunday's recipe was chosen by Raeann of Basically Baby Boots . Great choice, Raeann!!! I love pound cake!! I couldn't wait to try this recipe. Sour cream pound cakes are my favorite!!! This cake batter had the most beautiful lemony color and fragrance.

I have a habit of not always reading a recipe thoroughly and missing a ingredient or a step. Not this one, this recipe came together perfectly. Somehow I messed up the timer and went to check how long left and what? it wasn't counting down. I had to estimate how long it had been in the oven, so I began checking it way before it was done. I believe it took close to 1 hour and 30 minutes to bake. I did feel that some of the edges were getting too brown before the center was done. I covered it with foil for the last 10 minutes.

The end pieces of the pound cake were a little dry. Once you made it to the middle, those pieces had a nice moist texture and the best flavor. This recipe is a keeper!!!


Next Sunday's recipe, Black Bottom Brownies.

  5. The cake looks wonderful even if you forgot to set the timer. I have done that so many times that I have lost track. But everything usually turns out okay... :)

  6. I think a lot of people had issues with the outside cooking faster than the inside! Very weird, but great job on yours!

  7. It was wonderful! I agree, sometimes it's really hard to keep track, but then again, sometimes I just leave it and it turns out okay in the end.

  11. I really liked this one too, much to my surprise because I'm not a big fan of pound cake in general. Yours looks perfect! I think a lot of us had issues with the edges getting too dark before the inside was cooked - I'll definitely tent next time!

  14. Your cake looks delicious! I wish I had thought of covering mine with a foil to avoid it from browning too much. Great job!

  15. Julie,

    Ditto on this recipe being a keeper! I'm glad that your pound cake turned out well afterall. Even the dry end pieces probably taste good with a little milk, or hot tea to wash it down. Thank you for baking with me this week.
