This delicious pound cake is another family favorite. I got this recipe from a good friend (Kelly Jane) and have made many loaves, for many years! In fact my family likes this so much, that I triple the recipe, when I make it, and freeze several loaves for later. It's really scrumptious!
1 Cup Butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. soda
1 cup Sour Cream
1 tsp. pure vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped marachino cherries
3/4 cup shopped almonds or pecans
Cream butter - add sugar gradually - beat until light. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Sift flour, salt and soda - add to batter alternately with the Sour Cream. Add flavorings. Grease 2 large loaf pans heavily or cover with wax paper on bottom of pan.. You can also use a 10 inch bundt pan if desired, instead of the 2 large loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees or until done. Cool in pan for about 10 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool.
