Augusta National Sour Cream Pound Cake is not coated with icing or dripping with chocolate ganache because it's flavor is delectably light and delicious all on its own.
Augusta National shared their recipe in my beloved, stain-ridden pages of Augusta Junior League cookbook, “Tea-Time at the Masters.”. Growing up in Augusta, this was the first cookbook I owned and still holds to be one of my favorites in my collection.
The cake is easy to take to church suppers and picnics or to wrap up and give as a gift. The best part is, it is so easy to make even the novelist baker can whip this up and have a perfect pound cake with just a few simple ingredients.
How to serve poundcake
You can dress this cake up if you would like with sliced strawberry and whip cream or a tart lemony glaze. However, I like mine as a simple cake bringing back my memories of a slice at home during a warm summer's evening.
One of the nicest parts about baking this sour cream pound cake is there's more than enough to share. It's a perfect time to show southern hospitality, invite a friend over for a slice and some sweet conversation.
